The Republic of Biaten is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Kwan with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.788 billion Biatenians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal 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 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biatenian economy, worth 280 trillion Thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 156,785 Thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and being Chancellor Kwan has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime is totally unknown. Biaten's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Biaten is ranked 127,208th in the world and 83rd in The Western Isles for Most Extreme, scoring 15.07 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
