The Holy Kingdom of Battlion is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Jacquard Dumont with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, enforced nudity, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.972 billion Batts 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 medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Battronio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Battlionian economy, worth a remarkable 3,761 trillion Battios a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 419,215 Battios, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,973,020 per year while the poor average 19,697, a ratio of 150 to 1.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and arthritic citizens seem underrepresented at royal meet-and-greets. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Battlion's national animal is the Anaconda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Batts Church.

Battlion is ranked 2,262nd in the world and 9th in Gay for Highest Economic Output, with 3,761 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
