Government and Religion

The city is currently ruled by its founder Constantine. Constantine is a great emperor who gives to the poor, hosts many public events, builds hospitals and other buildings.

When Constantine built his city, he intended it to be the center of religion in the empire. The church was called the Eastern orthodox Church. Orthodox means "in agreement with belief."
