The Holy Empire of Byzant is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Justinian and Theodora with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, fear of technology, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 35.367 billion Byzantians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantian economy, worth a remarkable 5,831 trillion bezants a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 164,898 bezants, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 556,222 per year while the poor average 36,188, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, and politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Byzant is ranked 994th in the world and 47th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 61.03 Obesity Rate.
