OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Byzantine Empire of Messeg is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.534 billion Messegians 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 toxic air pollution, and its currency is the solidus.

Messeg is ranked 47th in Eastern Roman Empire and 29,669th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 110 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
