The Holy Socialist Republic of Constantinopolis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the working class with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 34.808 billion class-conscious workers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Byzantium. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Constantian economy, worth a remarkable 5,730 trillion socialist credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 164,631 socialist credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and workers have seized control of the economy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Constantinopolis's national animal is the fire ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Orthodox Church.

Constantinopolis is ranked 16,482nd in the world and 1st in The Christian Communist Union for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
