Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Manuel IV Venizelos with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.709 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantinoupolis. The average income tax rate is 91.3%.

The large but underdeveloped Imperium Byzantiumian economy, worth 311 trillion Soliduses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,610 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. 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, and its national religion is Byzantine Orthodox Christianity.

Imperium Byzantium is ranked 3,695th in Osiris and 143,488th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -6 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
