The Technocratic Republic of Bytestormia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Connor Emerson with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, prohibition of alcohol, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.463 billion Bytestormians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Bytestormia. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bytestormian economy, worth 213 trillion Neo-Bitcoins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,672 Neo-Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Bytestormian bee, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, and cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bytestormia's national animal is the Spiked Viper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vooperism.

Bytestormia is ranked 60,693rd in the world and 1,867th in Balder for Most Politically Free, scoring 67.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
