It's worthy of a « banana republic * »



* This expression was invented by the American writer O. Henry in 1904 to designate a dictatorial and corrupt regime. At that time, American companies producing fruit in Central America paid bribes to managers to promote their activities, as did the United Fruit Company, an American banana company. (source)
