The Free Land of Bytes is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by ByteCommander with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.123 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byteople. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Bytesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,099 trillion ByteCoins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,290 ByteCoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no 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 16,059th in the world and 239th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,099 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
