Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Manuel IV Venizelos with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.366 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.1%.

The thriving Imperium Byzantiumian economy, worth 552 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. Average income is an impressive 102,907 Soliduses, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. 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 2,776th in Osiris and 118,969th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -0.32 Net Tourists per hour.
