OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Armed Republic of A baddon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mighty Fuhrer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 24.289 billion love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abaddonia. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, the wreckages of bombed planes that litter A baddon are highly popular tourist destinations, crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A baddon's national animal is the radioactive super zomb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the quesaburro.

A baddon is ranked 1st in All under heaven and 122,639th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -27 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
