The Free Land of Bytes is a massive, safe nation, ruled by ByteCommander with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.574 billion Bytesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byteople. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bytesian economy, worth 557 trillion ByteCoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,118 ByteCoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, it's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from ByteCommander's childhood, students abandon classrooms for online education, and garden flower shows rarely smell of roses. Crime is totally unknown. Bytes's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bytheism.

Bytes is ranked 13,031st in the world and 391st in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 79.42 Atheism Rate.
