The planet colonized by Meta-gene positive human beings. After a few years the colonists learned that a deadly microbe was poisoning them and rendering organic food supplies inedible.
Bismollians bodies adapted enzymes which enabled them to digest the poisonous food supplies. Their descendants discovered that the enzymes caused a change in their genetic structures which also enabled them to digest inorganic matter as well. Thus Bismollians could literally eat anything.
By the 30th century, Bismoll developed a political system which selected its leaders through a draft. The Legionnaire named Matter-Eater Lad was forced to leave his teammates when he learned that he had been drafted into political office.
