Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Byzantine Empire of Messeg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.771 billion Messegians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Industry, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.

The powerhouse Messegian economy, worth a remarkable 1,552 trillion soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 74,766 soliduses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,099 per year while the poor average 6,509, a ratio of 64.8 to 1.

The workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Messeg's national animal is the bicephalus eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Messeg is ranked 139,887th in the world and 262nd in Eastern Roman Empire for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 45.7 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
