The Imperial State of Neo Byzantium Empire is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Octavian with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 961 million Byzantines are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Byzantinian economy, worth 61.4 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,883 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Airport security is provided by private companies, protest songs are the nation's de facto anthems, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, and corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Byzantium Empire's national animal is the Imperial Eagle.

Neo Byzantium Empire is ranked 159,983rd in the world and 42nd in The Monarchy alliance for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.06 Crimes Per Hour.
