The Armed Republic of A baddon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mighty Fuhrer with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 38.47 billion baddonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abaddonia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient baddonian economy, worth an astonishing 12,718 trillion quesaburros a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 330,608 quesaburros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A baddon successfully hosted the All under heaven Olympics, arbitration is mightier than the sword, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, and most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A baddon's national animal is the radioactive super zomb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

A baddon is ranked 161st in the world and 1st in All under heaven for Smartest Citizens, with 362.37 Quips Per Hour.
