The Dashing Former Delegate of Badger is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Bucky Badger with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 4.18 billion Big Bad MFers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madtown. The average income tax rate is 40.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Badgerian economy, worth 158 trillion Francoes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,896 Francoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, Information Technology facilities are being turned into Pooch habitats, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Badger's national animal is the Pooch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Badger is ranked 107,540th in the world and 4,269th in the Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 35 on the Rand Index.
