Neo-Byzantium Europa

The Empire of Neo-Byzantium Europa is a tiny, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12 million Neo-Byzantium Europans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The fair Neo-Byzantium Europan economy, worth 429 billion Narhars 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. 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 35,825 Narhars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every politician claims to be at least 1% Native Neo-Byzantium Europan, the police double as repo men, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo-Byzantium Europa's national animal is the Greek Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Neo-Byzantium Europa is ranked 50,276th in the world and 87th in Spiritus for Safest, scoring 95.99 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
