The Community of Free Badanouais is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 103 million Free Badanouaisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Free Badanouaisian economy, worth 481 billion vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is 4,676 vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, police escort anti-abortion activists to free speech cages if they try to express their views, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Badanouais's national animal is the ladybug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Free Badanouais is ranked 240,540th in the world and 9,722nd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
