The Free Land of Bytes is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by ByteCommander with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.204 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, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byteople. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bytesian economy, worth 972 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 156,759 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 200,643rd in the world and 7,857th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.64 Crimes Per Hour.
