The Kingdom of Batiber2 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 459 million Batiber2ians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Batiber2ian economy, worth 15.6 trillion Silvers 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 34,064 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, the police insist that racism does not exist, and the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Batiber2's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Batiber2 is ranked 174,712th in the world and 186th in Resuscitation for Most Developed, scoring 49.91 on the Human Development Index.
