The Rogue Nation of Bad option is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord high dictator for life with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.594 billion Fools are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crumbeling city. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bad optionian economy, worth a remarkable 4,079 trillion Used condoms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 425,219 Used condoms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

People are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, foreign lack of enthusiasm for Bad optionian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bad option's national animal is the Blind mole rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The great me.

Bad option is ranked 305,499th in the world and 11,438th in The East Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring -92 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
