The Free Land of Bytes is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by ByteCommander with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.46 billion Bytesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byteople. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bytesian economy, worth 696 trillion ByteCoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,194 ByteCoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, it's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from ByteCommander's childhood, students abandon classrooms for online education, and garden flower shows rarely smell of roses. Crime is totally unknown. Bytes's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bytheism.

Bytes is ranked 74,015th in the world and 3,256th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,807.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
