The Democratic Republic of Biscuitvania is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 179 million Biscuitvanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Biscuitvanian economy, worth 4.76 trillion Doges a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 26,574 Doges, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, Biscuitvanians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, and diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biscuitvania's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Biscuitvania is ranked 147,385th in the world and 7,194th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring zero on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
