OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Byzantine Empire of Messeg is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.784 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The large, pro-business government is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Commerce are secondary priorities. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Woodchip Exports.

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 pervasive. Messeg's national animal is the bicephalus eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the solidus.

Messeg is ranked 254th in Eastern Roman Empire and 94,091st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.091 Stalins.
