The Daffy Dog Daddy of Big Bad Badger is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mr Badger with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.802 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 tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mad Town. The average income tax rate is 8.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Big Bad Badgerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,218 trillion Bones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,283 Bones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, street gangs rule most of the nation's major cities, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Big Bad Badger's national animal is the Pooch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Big Bad Badger is ranked 156,847th in the world and 6,432nd in the West Pacific for Most Devout, with 3.92 Prayers Per Hour.
