The Badlands are a canyon covered area of the wasteland in Mad Max: Fury Road.


It is home to two groups of people, The Buzzards and the Rock Riders. The Buzzards live in an area called The Sunken City, located within a system of caves below the canyons and mesas of the Badlands. The Rock Riders live on the surface, using modified dirt bikes and motorcycles to maneuver the rough terrain. There is only one surface road through the Badlands. Imperator Furiosa, of The Citadel, arranged a deal with the Rock Riders to use this one road in exchange for 3000 gallons of Guzzolene.
