The Armed Republic of A baddon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mighty Fuhrer with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 37.806 billion baddonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, 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 an astonishing 12,421 trillion quesaburros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 328,550 quesaburros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, flight attendants rip down curtains with revolutionary fervor, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". 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 47th in the world and 1st in All under heaven for Longest Average Lifespans, with 101.61 Years.
