The Republic of Biaten is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.43 billion Biatenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hachen. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biatenian economy, worth 391 trillion Thalers a year, is fairly diversified 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 161,264 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables, voting is voluntary, and the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Biatenians marry themselves'. Crime is totally unknown. Biaten's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Biaten is ranked 7,911th in the world and 20th in The Western Isles for Smartest Citizens, with 99.87 Quips Per Hour.
