The Byzantine Empire of Constantinolia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Andronikos VI with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, unlimited-speed roads, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.815 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 International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantine economy, worth 690 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 143,439 hyperpyrons, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma. 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 154,414th in the world and 7,776th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -14.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
