The Democratic State of Battlion is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Michael Quinn with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.25 billion Battlionese are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Battronio. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery industries.
The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Battlion's national animal is the Free Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is The Battionese Church, and its currency is the Battio.
