The Galaxy-Wide Broadcast of Big Shot is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.222 billion Big Shotians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Big Shotian economy, worth 236 trillion Woolongs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 106,258 Woolongs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 725,375 per year while the poor average 5,638, a ratio of 128 to 1.

Schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Big Shot's national animal is the Corgi, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Big Shot is ranked 112th in the world and 1st in Cowboy Bebop for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1,078.58 Bank.
