Commodore Badger

Population1.227 billion


The Reaving Skallywag of Commodore Badger is a massive, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.227 billion Bad MFers 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Commodore Badgerian economy, worth 32.8 trillion Francos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 26,735 Francos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, the nation solves other countries' human rights problems with a generous dose of violence, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, and Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Commodore Badger's national animal is the Parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Commodore Badger is ranked 37,067th in the world and 1,094th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,026.68 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
