The Byzantine Empire of Messeg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.26 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 concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Defence and Commerce are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17%. 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 30th in Eastern Roman Empire and 14,577th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
