The K I N G D O M of Carstantinopipal is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Carson VIII with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 10.687 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, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carson City. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Carstantinopipalian economy, worth a remarkable 2,629 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 246,029 Carson Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. 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 4,312th in the world and 2nd in The United Empires of Carson for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 18,828.87 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
