The Empire of Byzantine Refugees is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Narses Maniakes with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.174 billion Byzantines are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rize. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantine economy, worth a remarkable 1,011 trillion Caesars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 140,952 Caesars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 939,212 per year while the poor average 8,041, a ratio of 116 to 1.

Teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', and the nation's mettle is about to be tested. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byzantine Refugees's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.
