The Republic of Biaten is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Siegel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.139 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hachen. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biatenian economy, worth 681 trillion Thalers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,689 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and children prefer to begin their day with push-ups rather than breakfast. Crime is totally unknown. Biaten's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Biaten is ranked 210,128th in the world and 165th in The Western Isles for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -16.91 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
