The Byzantine Empire of Messeg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, enslaved workforce, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.478 billion Messegians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Industry, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The powerhouse Messegian economy, worth a remarkable 1,250 trillion soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 75,898 soliduses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 433,981 per year while the poor average 6,419, a ratio of 67.6 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 205th in Eastern Roman Empire and 82,371st in the world for Most Devout, scoring 1 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
