The Empire of Communist Byzantine
“Be, We, He, She, Us Will, Stand, Forever.”
Location: Renegade Islands Alliance
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Empire of Communist Byzantine is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its burgeoning White Tailed Eagle population. The hard-working, democratic population of 200 million Communist Byzantineans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.8%.
The very strong Communist Byzantinean economy, worth 12.7 trillion Sckocs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 63,432 Sckocs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 215,412 per year while the poor average 13,780, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, and children use fake IDs to purchase candy. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Communist Byzantine's national animal is the White Tailed Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
