The Division of Biotalmans Forces of The Front is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Eve with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.598 billion Biotalmans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bunker City. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Biotalman economy, worth 316 trillion Pelts a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,057 Pelts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Only adults may purchase violent video games, aspiring pilots must be personally vetted by the Minister of Transportation before receiving their license, Eve is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, and politicians are battling inequality by declaring themselves better than everyone else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biotalmans Forces of The Front's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Military.

Biotalmans Forces of The Front is ranked 36,277th in the world and 12th in Urana Firma for Most Influential, scoring 808 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
