The Republic of Byzkorda is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.685 billion Byzkordans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Byzkordan economy, worth 817 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,233 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byzkorda's national animal is the unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Byzkorda is ranked 7,104th in the world and 364th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,778.38 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
