The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Pavlos Alexios II Venizelos with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.297 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 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Imperium Byzantium, almost all of Imperium Byzantium's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and tax rises are attributed to divine will. 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 3,090th in Osiris and 112,474th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -126 Dawkins.
