The Galaxy-Wide Broadcast of Big Shot is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ritual sacrifices, and daily referendums. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.518 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, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Big Shotian economy, worth 386 trillion Woolongs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 109,726 Woolongs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 689,913 per year while the poor average 7,351, a ratio of 93.8 to 1.

Most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, the Big Shotian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. 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 860th in the world and 32nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 18,962.96 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
