The Most Serene Republic of Battadia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 524 million Battadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saydt. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Battadian economy, worth 47.6 trillion guiders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 90,920 guiders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Battadia's national animal is the bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Battadia is ranked 29,483rd in the world and 30th in Force for Most Developed, scoring 75.72 on the Human Development Index.
