The Socialist People's Badaran Jamahiriya is a small, isolated mountain nation in the Northern region of Whateverthatcontinentiscalled.
The United Socialist States of Badara is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, cynical population of 110 million are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. A small private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
The nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, all beauty contests have been banned, and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. Badara's national animal is the Camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Badar.
