The Corperation of Battion is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by CEO with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.27 billion Corporate slaves are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great Slum. The average income tax rate is 3.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Battionian economy, worth 592 trillion Invisible dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 181,192 Invisible dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, luxury condos have arisen from the ashes of demolished houses of worship, and people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Battion's national animal is the Gulag worker, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Battion is ranked 120,864th in the world and 4,208th in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 18.7 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
