The Empire of Byzantioc is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, cynical population of 128 million Byzantiocians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 35.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Byzantiocian economy, worth 5.13 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,089 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", Eckie-Ecola has declared that their soda poop is The Real Thing, the official Byzantiocian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byzantioc's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Byzantioc is ranked 89,874th in the world and 4,389th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 83.68 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
