The ☙ Holy Heiled Empire ❧ of Carstantinopipal is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Carson with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 4.513 billion Carsonites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson City. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Carstantinopipalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,061 trillion Carson Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 235,317 Carson Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, science labs across the country languish in cobwebs as the government turns its attentions to spiritual matters, and strategic bombers are being converted into preschools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carstantinopipal's national animal is the Carsoraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Carsonism.

Carstantinopipal is ranked 5,494th in the world and 3rd in The United Empires of Carson for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,272.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
