Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Aftokrátoras Ioánnis XIII Rosíni with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.277 billion Byzantines are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantinoupolis. The average income tax rate is 33.0%.

The all-consuming Byzantine economy, worth a remarkable 1,108 trillion Soliduses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 133,907 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', movie references are legally admissible in court, and the government has enacted freedom of information. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperium Byzantium's national animal is the Double-Headed Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Byzantine Orthodox Christianity.

Imperium Byzantium is ranked 40,383rd in the world and 1,681st in Osiris for Largest Governments, scoring 20.45 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
