Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Republic of A baddon is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mighty Fuhrer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 30.86 billion baddonians 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abaddonia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient baddonian economy, worth a remarkable 9,954 trillion quesaburros a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 322,574 quesaburros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. 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.

A baddon is ranked 19,422nd in the world and 1st in All under heaven for Highest Drug Use, scoring 102.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
