The Empire of Badger Wind is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Creator Destroyer with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.286 billion Badgers 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of When Pigs Fly. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Badgerian economy, worth a remarkable 5,316 trillion nuggets 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, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. 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 307,571 nuggets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Badger Wind's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Badger Wind is ranked 205,627th in the world and 7,603rd in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 1.45 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
