The Empire of Imperium Byzantium is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Andronikos X Venizelos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.604 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 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, religious education is a new government priority, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, and pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police. 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 493rd in Osiris and 12,065th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 174 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
