Constantine Lambros

Population8.241 billion

LeaderJustinian Kalominos


The Selene Crown Prince of Constantine Lambros is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Justinian Kalominos with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.241 billion Selenids hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byzantium. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Selenid economy, worth 690 trillion Soliduses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 83,762 Soliduses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and traditional vegetarians are fuming over the introduction of vat-grown meat to the menu. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Constantine Lambros's national animal is the Bass, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Constantine Lambros is ranked 164,635th in the world and 9th in Selene for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -3.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
