Officially, Bialya is a constitutional monarchy, ruled by Queen Bee. In reality, it's a militaristic dictatorship ruled with an iron fist. It has not signed the UN's Justice League charter, and Queen Bee uses its territory and military for her dealings with the Light.
After the huge energy spike of the transport was detected by the Watchtower, the Team was sent to investigate. Psimon discovered them and took away their memories, and the Bialyan army was sent to capture them. The Team eventually managed to free the Sphere and make it to Qurac.
Queen Bee hatched a plot to incorporate Qurac in her realm. She sent Psimon to Dhabar to mind control Rumaan Harjavti into giving up his country, while she kept up the public image by keeping press conference about the reunification from her royal palace.
The final stages of the excavation process caused days of tremors and earthquakes across the world, which alerted the Justice League and the Team. They sent two squads to investigate; they eventually found the Temple of Marduk and caught Klarion and Blockbuster as they were about to unleash Tiamat. They had used the Team and captured Aquagirl in order to obtain the final pieces needed for the release. The squads led by Aqualad and Nightwing defeated Klarion and Tiamat respectively, but in order to lock Tiamat back in the prison, Aquagirl had to sacrifice herself.
Queen Bee used a facility in the desert to store abducted teenagers from all over the world, and then ship them to a place where the Partner could use them. Miss Martian, Bumblebee, Batgirl, Wonder Girl stumbled on the facility when they were investigating boom tube activity, and saved the majority of the children. Queen Bee, however, had another shipment that came in after the heroes left.
At the temple, Queen Bee told her minions that she sympathized with them for having to throw the fight with the Team, but that it was necessary for the Light's plans to proceed.
Queen Bee launched a full-scale invasion of the country of Qurac, using both conventional forces and meta-humans such as Mammoth. The invasion caused a large number of Quraci civilians to flee the country as refugees, with many being admitted to Markovia. After conquering Qurac, it was annexed by Bialya with the now enlarged country renamed "Greater Bialya" to reflect the unification of the two countries. Qurac's incumbent and last president, Sumaan Harjavti, was made Greater Bialya's United Nations ambassador.
