Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Byzant is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 25.006 billion Byzantians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantian economy, worth a remarkable 2,995 trillion bezants a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,802 bezants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, teachers regularly paddle unruly students, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, and agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Byzant's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Byzant is ranked 9,218th in the world and 165th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Poor Incomes, with 92,186.68 Standard Monetary Units.
