The Republic of Biaten is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor Siegel with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.636 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, outspoken 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 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Biatenian economy, worth 569 trillion Thalers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 156,648 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, and a formerly quiet little town is now booming as both a cult centre and a tourist attraction. Crime is totally unknown. Biaten's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Biaten is ranked 194,415th in the world and 115th in The Western Isles for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.69 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
