Definition: A banana republic whose only export is war, and where the population is brainwashed from childhood to believe that it is an exceptional entity to which international laws and norms of behaviour do not apply. Especially true if its form of government is one where the voter is compelled to choose between two identical parties and candidates, which are legally allowed to be purchased by corporate donors, and which still pretends to be a democracy.
Synonyms: Imperialism, neo-colonialism, warmongering, military-industrial complex, hypocrisy.
Etymology: From part of the name of the United States of America, the entity which was consumed and taken over by a corporate-political-military nexus and transformed into the exemplar of the said subtype of banana republic; and -stan, for Land.
Example: “Amerikastan has just invaded another inoffensive and defenceless nation in support of jihadist cannibal headhunters?” he exclaimed. “How many does that make?”
