Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aftokrátoras Ioánnis XIII Rosíni with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.764 billion Byzantines are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantinoupolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.9%.

The all-consuming Byzantine economy, worth a remarkable 1,083 trillion Soliduses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 139,559 Soliduses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 565,852 per year while the poor average 22,912, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Drunk drivers are sentenced to death, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance. 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 88,905th in the world and 2,928th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,060.32 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
