Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Byzant is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 26.467 billion Byzantians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantian economy, worth a remarkable 3,111 trillion bezants a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 117,558 bezants, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and teenage fathers are forced to join the army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Byzant's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Byzant is ranked 166,716th in the world and 3,385th in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 0.58 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
