The Badlands Beyond The Brink of The Bizarre is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ernest Mann with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.219 billion Bizarroes are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Down Town. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Bizarrean economy, worth a remarkable 1,554 trillion Time Credits a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,261 Time Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, planespotters are emigrating in droves, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, and the moose is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Bizarre's national animal is the moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bizarrism.

The Bizarre is ranked 4,523rd in the world and 1st in The Illuminati for Most Influential, scoring 11,243 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
