Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Byzant is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 25.911 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.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Spirituality and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantian economy, worth a remarkable 3,227 trillion bezants a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,565 bezants, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, the government seizes all major gold finds, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Byzant's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Byzant is ranked 160,888th in the world and 3,033rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -52 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
