OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Byronmandy is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Roland Bedivere with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 13.242 billion Byronmadians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Byronmandyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,517 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 190,140 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Daily newspapers are permitted to run only pro-government stories, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byronmandy's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

Byronmandy is ranked 36th in Modorra and 111,150th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -948.1 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
