The Holy Empire of Byzant is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.55 billion Byzantians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 50.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantian economy, worth a remarkable 3,109 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. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,301 bezants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Healthcare funding has been cut, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, and disaster victims are viewed with disdain. 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 2nd in the Rejected Realms and 214th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 554 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
