We welcome The Holy Empire of Byzantine Descent (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Byzantine+Descent), as the 241st member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Holy Empire of Byzantine Descent is a tiny, devout nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic government concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Religion & Spirituality and Defence are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 33%. A substantial private sector is led by the Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.
Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Byzantine Descent's national animal is the double-headded eagle and its currency is the solidus.
