The Hellenic Empire of Nea Byzantia is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.33 billion Byzantians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Christopoulos. The average income tax rate is 38.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Byzantian economy, worth 994 trillion Basilikons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 186,669 Basilikons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', the Byzantian government claim that Byzantians are oppressed out of love, and a popular artist is claiming that a raw steak with a dog turd on it is a portrait of Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Nea Byzantia's national animal is the the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Greek Orthodox Christianity.

Nea Byzantia is ranked 149,813th in the world and 55th in Eastern Roman Empire for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 39.51 Workforce Participation Rate.
