The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Constantine XVI Venizelos with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.226 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantinoupolis. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Byzantine Orthodox Christianity, and its currency is the Solidus.

Imperium Byzantium is ranked 195th in Osiris and 6,869th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 15 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
