The ☙ Holy Imperial State ❧ of Carstantinopipal is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Regent Marley with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 7.461 billion Carsonites 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 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 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Carstantinopipalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,828 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 and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 245,059 Carson Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and in musicals everybody's a little bit racist. 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 144,034th in the world and 53rd in The United Empires of Carson for Largest Black Market, with 159 billion Standard Monetary Units.
