The Enlightened Republic of Bad Omen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Coco Jambo with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 24.498 billion Bad Omenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azweiz. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bad Omenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,591 trillion escudoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,787 escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Bad Omen's national animal is the Snow Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bad Omen is ranked 172,389th in the world and 86th in Portugal for Most Avoided, scoring 0.45 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
