Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Byzantine Empire of Messeg is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.132 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, 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 9.9%.

The powerhouse Messegian economy, worth a remarkable 1,505 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 21,758th in the world and 50th in Eastern Roman Empire for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,496.66 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
