The Holy Empire of Byzant is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Justinian and Theodora with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 33.729 billion Byzantians 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 Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 1.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantian economy, worth a remarkable 5,215 trillion bezants a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,638 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, nudity is frowned upon, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byzant's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Byzant is ranked 205,399th in the world and 6,012th in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 0.28 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
