The Holy Empire of Hyzante is a huge, safe nation, notable for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 466 million Hyzantians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Hyzante. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hyzantian economy, worth 45.2 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 97,008 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, and comic books avoid plot inconsistencies by removing the plot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyzante's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hyzante is ranked 28,395th in the world and 527th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,590.39 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
