By zantium

Population196 million


The Empire of By zantium is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 196 million Byzantines 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 47.0%.

The powerhouse By zantiumian economy, worth 19.0 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 97,032 Drachmas, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and all screens are equal but some are more equal than others. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. By zantium's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

By zantium is ranked 82,647th in the world and 2,048th in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 20.75 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
