The Nomadic Peoples of The Infernal Badlands is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 468 million Infernal Badlandsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Infernal Badlandsian economy, worth 26.6 trillion Cyrpts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is 56,748 Cyrpts, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 250,318 per year while the poor average 8,062, a ratio of 31.0 to 1.

Toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and the children of The Infernal Badlands are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Infernal Badlands's national animal is the Vulture, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

The Infernal Badlands is ranked 200,101st in the world and 105th in Barbaria for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 4.87 Effective Tax Rate.
