Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Byzantine Empire of Messeg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.727 billion Messegians 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 relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.

The powerhouse Messegian economy, worth a remarkable 1,474 trillion soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 74,766 soliduses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,099 per year while the poor average 6,509, a ratio of 64.8 to 1.

The workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Messeg's national animal is the bicephalus eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Messeg is ranked 53,495th in the world and 40th in Eastern Roman Empire for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,766.78 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
