The Confederation of Byzantium 1 is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Head of state nicholas with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.225 billion greeks 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of constantinople. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient greek economy, worth 623 trillion soliduses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 193,265 soliduses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Byzantium 1 with a very polite populace, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, the serf suggestion box would work better if more serfs were literate, and the Byzantium 1 Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byzantium 1's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is eastern orthodox.

Byzantium 1 is ranked 215,499th in the world and 21st in Roman Byzantine Union for Most Extreme, scoring 6.2 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
