The Consulate of Byronmandy is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Roland Bedivere with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 12.336 billion Byronmandyians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allentown. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining industries.

Artists are pillars of society, the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system, litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Crown.

Byronmandy is ranked 23rd in Modorra and 96,617th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -24.8 Insults Per Minute (net).
