The Byzantine Republic of The New Byzantine II is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme President Gregorios Stavrios with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 8.025 billion Byzantines have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athenia. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Byzantine IIian economy, worth 585 trillion Byzantine drachmas a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,905 Byzantine drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Byzantine II's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox Church.

The New Byzantine II is ranked 77,278th in the world and 3,154th in Balder for Largest Black Market, with 448 billion Standard Monetary Units.
