The Terrible Swift Sword of Bad Cog is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its fear of technology, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 12.897 billion Bad Cogians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.9%.

The powerhouse Bad Cogian economy, worth 947 trillion $$s a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,479 $$s, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 295,539 per year while the poor average 12,226, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

Wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bad Cog's national animal is the Death's-head Hawkmoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bad Cog is ranked 211,236th in the world and 21st in BLITZKRIEG for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -5.66 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
