The Rockin in the Free World of Big Bad Badger is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr Badger with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 12.05 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 relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mad Town. The average income tax rate is 10.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Big Bad Badgerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,616 trillion Boneses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 134,166 Boneses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, Big Bad Badgerian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Big Bad Badger's national animal is the Wild Turkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Big Bad Badger is ranked 220,349th in the world and 6,009th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -32.4 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
