Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Michael X Rossinios with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.294 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, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantinoupolis. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Imperium Byzantiumian economy, worth 570 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 rampant. Average income is 90,680 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, fraternities are notoriously exclusive, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace. 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 3,451st in Osiris and 120,848th in the world for Most Inclusive, scoring -66 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
