The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Constantine XVI Venizelos with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.065 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 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 288th in Osiris and 10,505th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 425.5 Net Tourists per hour.
