The Byzantine Empire of Constantinolia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Andronikos VI with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.153 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 juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantine economy, worth 761 trillion hyperpyrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 147,700 hyperpyrons, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, and Andronikos VI is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. 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 49,266th in the world and 2,513th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,133.09 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
