The Region of The Badwater Basin is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Park Ranger with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 6.839 billion Badwater Basinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Badwater Basin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Badwater Basinian economy, worth 974 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 142,514 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons, protests are legal but strictly supervised, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Badwater Basin's national animal is the desert tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Environment.

The Badwater Basin is ranked 5,175th in the world and 3rd in Death Valley for Most Developed, scoring 93.82 on the Human Development Index.
