The Byzantine Kingdom of Gibraltarica is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Justinian with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, public floggings, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 6.97 billion Gibraltaricans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byzantion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Gibraltarican economy, worth a remarkable 1,206 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 173,033 Denarii, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 516,013 per year while the poor average 45,434, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

Children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gibraltarica's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Gibraltarica is ranked 66,465th in the world and 144th in The Black Hawks for Most Influential, scoring 140 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
