The Empire of Byantuim Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Samuel Ilizarov with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 1.999 billion romans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 17.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth 320 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 160,488 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Ad hoc militias patrol the streets in an effort to control rampant crime, the world still seems flat to some people in space, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, and main battle tanks stalk the woods of Byantuim Empire in search of Phoenixes. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Byantuim Empire's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Greek gods.

Byantuim Empire is ranked 15,646th in the world and 2nd in The Empire of Nova Roma for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 331,379 Standard Monetary Units.
