The Republic of Bad Encounter is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.631 billion Bad Encounterians 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.7%.
The very strong Bad Encounterian economy, worth 296 trillion lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,123 lire, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 363,549 per year while the poor average 5,529, a ratio of 65.7 to 1.
The government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. Crime is a serious problem. Bad Encounter's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
