The Empire of Badger Wind is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Creator Destroyer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.625 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 6,595 trillion nuggets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 257,390 nuggets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The existence of external reality is tacitly denied, a the South Pacific Tourist Association survey has rated Badger Wind #1 for number twos, the question of 'what is Creator Destroyer's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 142nd in the world and 4th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 22,936.57 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
