The Holy Empire of Byrdonia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Viktor Reznov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.293 billion Byrdonians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tombstone. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Byrdonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,144 trillion dollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 an amazing 347,406 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Byrdonians believe manners maketh the leader, citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, political activists are routinely executed, and priests are being drafted by the church load. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byrdonia's national animal is the Red Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.
