The Rogue Nation of Bad option is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord high dictator for life with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.567 billion Fools are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration and Industry are also considered important, while Education and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crumbeling city. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bad optionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,475 trillion Used condoms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 323,165 Used condoms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, science labs across the country languish in cobwebs as the government turns its attentions to spiritual matters, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bad option's national animal is the Blind mole rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The great me.

Bad option is ranked 623rd in the world and 15th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 1,724.96 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
