Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Manuel IV Venizelos with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.488 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 receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantinoupolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.7%.

The thriving Imperium Byzantiumian economy, worth 564 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 102,807 Soliduses, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements. 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 1,012th in Osiris and 36,387th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 125 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
