We welcome The Dictatorship of Byzantine Empires (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Byzantine+Empires), as the 94th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Dictatorship of Byzantine Empires is a tiny, socially progressive nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, cynical population of 5 million are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Law & Order and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 53%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Gambling.
Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control. Byzantine Empires's national animal is the eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the solidus.
