The Holy Kingdom of Battlion is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Jacquard Dumont with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.941 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 92.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Battlionian economy, worth a remarkable 3,738 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 418,124 Battios, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,835,050 per year while the poor average 22,651, a ratio of 125 to 1.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. 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 150,294th in the world and 220th in Gay for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -4.47 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
