Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Aftokrátoras Ioánnis XIII Rosíni with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.098 billion Byzantines are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantinoupolis. The average income tax rate is 30.7%.

The all-consuming Byzantine economy, worth a remarkable 1,068 trillion Soliduses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 131,958 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The number of children one can have is restricted by law, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, teenage girls in knee-length surfer shorts have become a cultural icon of Imperium Byzantium, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. 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 99,224th in the world and 2,960th in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 157.48 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
