The Empire of Big disagree is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 299 million disagreed people are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Law & Order, although Administration, Environment, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Industry receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 76.0%.

The sizeable but inefficient disagreeing with you economy, worth 8.33 trillion polarized arguments a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 27,849 polarized arguments, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, and embittered former nobles desperately try to cling on to their noblesse oblige and their heads. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Big disagree's national animal is the radicalized moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Big disagree is ranked 159,200th in the world and 5,936th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 35.57 Insults Per Minute.
