Politics of the Imperial State of Constancia

National policymaking is essentially dependent on the personality of the Basileus. Decisions are, to a large extent, made on the basis of consultation among the senior officials of the Imperial Government, with input provided by The Imperial Synklētos.

The members of the governing and business elite are the principal political actors allowed by the government. Political participation outside this select group is limited.
