The Rockin in the Free World of Big Bad Badger is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mr Badger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 13.083 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mad Town. The average income tax rate is 15.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Badgerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,781 trillion Boneses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,203 Boneses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Supervisors in Big Bad Badger commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage. 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 236,175th in the world and 5,518th in the West Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 33.44 Whatever.
