The Republic of Bad Encounter is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.49 billion Bad Encounterians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 19.9%.

The strong Bad Encounterian economy, worth 207 trillion lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,386 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, thrift shops are closing their doors, and children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bad Encounter's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bad Encounter is ranked 180,736th in the world and 3rd in United Kingdom of Scandinavia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 44.58 Tourists Per Hour.
