The Free Land of Bytes is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by ByteCommander with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.465 billion Bytesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare 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 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bytesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,003 trillion ByteCoins a year, is highly 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 155,219 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 224,320th in the world and 8,971st in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -23.1 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
