Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Empire of Byzant is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 22.846 billion Byzantians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 36.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantian economy, worth a remarkable 3,170 trillion bezants a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 138,762 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Byzant's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Byzant is ranked 586th in the Rejected Realms and 34,532nd in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
