The Republic of Byronmandy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Roland Bedivere with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The cynical population of 18.438 billion Byronmadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympus. The average income tax rate is 6.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Byronmandyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,626 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 196,677 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, Roland Bedivere's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Byronmandy's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

Byronmandy is ranked 46,804th in the world and 12th in Mediterranean for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 44.83 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
