The Hellenic Empire of Nea Byzantia is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.256 billion Byzantians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.7%.

The all-consuming Byzantian economy, worth 763 trillion Basilikons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 179,436 Basilikons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 620,912 per year while the poor average 37,890, a ratio of 16.4 to 1.

Charities reserve the right to not help those who go against religious teachings, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country, and teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 126,112th in the world and 4,052nd in Lazarus for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 62.58 Workforce Participation Rate.
