|Leader||Arteaphous The Great|
The Kingdom of Ultimate Byzantine is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Arteaphous The Great with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 894 million Ultimate Byzantineans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byzanios. The average income tax rate is 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ultimate Byzantinean economy, worth 112 trillion Byzanics a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,680 Byzanics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", Arteaphous The Great can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing Arteaphous The Great to cartoon bears, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ultimate Byzantine's national animal is the BYZANTINE Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
