The Empire of Badger Wind is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Creator Destroyer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.512 billion Badgers 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of When Pigs Fly. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Badgerian economy, worth a remarkable 5,399 trillion nuggets 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, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. 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 308,320 nuggets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and billions of nuggets are spent to take high-quality photos of the Badger Nebula. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Badger Wind's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Badger Wind is ranked 129,026th in the world and 4,715th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 44.82 Insults Per Minute.
