The Nearly Witches of Miss Bad Life Choices is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dakota Vytherov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.041 billion Daks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azaelai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Dakian economy, worth 852 trillion gold coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,139 gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, and visitors to Miss Bad Life Choices are microchipped and must be escorted by a Dakian soldier - even to the bathroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miss Bad Life Choices's national animal is the space dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Lynxism.

Miss Bad Life Choices is ranked 27,833rd in the world and 55th in The Black Hawks for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,242.26 Tourists Per Hour.
