The Holy Empire of Biosian is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and triple-decker prams. The cynical population of 525 million Biosianians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.9%.

The powerhouse Biosianian economy, worth 43.3 trillion biosian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,513 biosian dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

A massive campaign is underway to ensure the race of Biosian remains pure, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, the fattest folk in Biosian look to be the happiest ones, and biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse. Crime is totally unknown. Biosian's national animal is the biosain eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Biosian is ranked 34,565th in the world and 1,177th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 217,900.95 Standard Monetary Units.
