The Holy Empire of Byzant is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Justinian and Theodora with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 28.073 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Law & Order. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantian economy, worth a remarkable 3,365 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,886 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, government spokespeople are working overtime trying to convince concerned citizens that Justinian and Theodora is not a crook, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, and sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors. 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, and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Byzant is ranked 53,012th in the world and 1,133rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Authoritarian, with 0.45 Stalins.
