Big Bad Badger

Population6.168 billion

CapitalMad Town
LeaderMeles Rahl


The Consigliere of Big Bad Badger is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Meles Rahl with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.168 billion Big Bad Badgerians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mad Town. The average income tax rate is 4.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Big Bad Badgerian economy, worth 760 trillion Boneses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,299 Boneses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle, escalators are avoided at all costs, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Mad Town Times is sold out, and tabloids coo over Meles Rahl's expected child. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Big Bad Badger's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Big Bad Badger is ranked 105,042nd in the world and 4,333rd in the West Pacific for Most Average, scoring 35.56 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
