The Free Land of The Byzarkleion Empire is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 237 million Byzarkleion Empireans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 37.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Byzarkleion Empirean economy, worth 15.1 trillion The byzarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 63,788 The byzarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, Leader's military council has been nicknamed 'The Knights of the Rotund Table', crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Byzarkleion Empire's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Byzarkleion Empire is ranked 121,872nd in the world and 3,865th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 49.81623200648 Days.
