The Most Serene Zombie Republic of Battadia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Hermann Schlott with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.051 billion Battadians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saydt. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Battadian economy, worth 486 trillion guiders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 159,366 guiders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is known as the cheapskates of Force, penny whistles have been rebranded 'tin hornpipes', life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Battadia's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Battadia is ranked 2,696th in the world and 2nd in Force for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.06 percentage of bribes refused.
