Byzantineball, also known as the Byzantiumball or Byzantine Empire, continues to refer to itself as the Eastern Roman Empire, is a Medieval countryball from south-east Europe.
At some point in history Roman Emperors noticed that spending long periods of time in Romeball was a bad idea. Because they was always traveling to
the beaches of East Mediterranean by the Empire to protect its borders and when they returned to Romeball they had to deal with many problems. So they decided to shift the capital city to Constantinopleball, but some Romeballs started to complain about the decision and some decades later the Empire was split in two.
So happened the Germanic barbarians invasions. They eventually attacked the walls of Constantinopleball ... and well... they don't conquered the city, so they turned around, and started to causing trouble in in the Western Roman Empireball. Everybody know what happened next - the fall of Rome... in West
Rome continued on in the East. By the time of the Islamic invasions, many Greekballs living outside of Italyball started to call themselves Romeball (even if it were a poor peasant who did not know any word of the Latin language). But in the same epoch the Italyballs stopped to calling themselves Romeballs and doesn't was governing a "Roman Empireball"... and the Greekballs was literally the only ones that was governing a "Roman Empireball", so anyone complained.
The coronation of HREball as "Roman" emperor by Papal Statesball in the year 800 was a deprived act of ilegitimate juridical profile: only the Roman emperor of the East (the emperor of Byzantineball) would be crowned a peer of him in the western part, which is why Constantinople was always suspicious of that act.
The emperors of the HREball sought in many ways to make themselves accepted by the Byzantines as their peers: with diplomatic relations, political marriages or threats. Sometimes, however, they did not obtain the expected results, because from Constantinople they were always called "King of the Germans", never "Emperor."
He was stronk empire, even to the point of re-conquering Rome from non-roman hands, but he got overrun by kebab. For many years he was the strongest nation in the world.

How to Draw
Drawing Byzantiumball is rather confusing considering the amount of possible designs you can chose from, but the most common is:
- Draw a circle coloured red
- Draw a cross coloured yellow
- Since you drew a yellow cross, the red circle is separated into quadrants, in those quadrants, draw the Greek letter "B" in yellow. On the left quadrants, make them face the opposite direction
- Draw two eyes and you're done!
