The Holy Empire of Konstantinopolis is a small, orderly nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 26 million Konstantinopolitans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The tiny, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, although Defense, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Industry receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The Konstantinopolitan economy, worth 1.59 trillion hyperpyrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 60,965 hyperpyrons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 192,258 per year while the poor average 14,775, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.

The government seizes all major gold finds, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Konstantinopolis's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Konstantinopolis is ranked 67,507th in the world and 3,548th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,675.98 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
