The Byzantine Empire of Constantinolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Andronikos VI with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.973 billion Byzantines are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Spirituality, although Defense, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantine economy, worth 718 trillion hyperpyrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 144,558 hyperpyrons, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Eagle Dung" has been declared a national treasure, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, the entire entry for Constantinolia in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and Byzantine tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Constantinolia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Constantinolia is ranked 27,875th in the world and 1,154th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 193 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
