The Gay Space Communist Haven of Byzonaea is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Everyone with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.623 billion Byzons are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Endless Meadow. The income tax rate is 100%.

The Byzonaean economy, worth a remarkable 1,026 trillion Shiny pebbles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 119,040 Shiny pebbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, red text rains down on the head of anyone who dares to step out of line (Byzonaea has found 2 easter eggs), and party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend. Crime is totally unknown. Byzonaea's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Unheard of.

Byzonaea is ranked 271,077th in the world and 540th in Refugia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.43 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
