LeaderAndronikos VI


The Byzantine Empire of Constantinolia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Andronikos VI with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, zero percent divorce rate, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.005 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Byzantine economy, worth a remarkable 1,278 trillion hyperpyrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 182,448 hyperpyrons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 808,330 per year while the poor average 25,718, a ratio of 31.4 to 1.

Business leaders are mailing Andronikos VI forged birth certificates in a bid to win their rivals as serfs, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, and preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime. 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 33,135th in the world and 431st in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,629.36 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
