The Rockin in the Free World of Big Bad Badger is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr Badger with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 11.552 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 relatively small, 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 39.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Big Bad Badgerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,678 trillion Boneses 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 extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,310 Boneses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Big Bad Badger's national animal is the Wild Turkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Big Bad Badger is ranked 152,879th in the world and 4,333rd in the West Pacific for Most Average, scoring 29.55 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
