The Armed Republic of BatNipples is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Robin population. The hard-nosed population of 7.361 billion BatNipplesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 26.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient BatNipplesian economy, worth 302 trillion BatCoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,052 BatCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, voting is voluntary, punitive tariffs protect local industry, and students cut up leftover BatCoins during Arts and Crafts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BatNipples's national animal is the Robin.

BatNipples is ranked 124,817th in the world and 5th in Kortexian Tech Barracks for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 847.82 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
