  Byzantine
       
           A term describing any system that has
          so many labyrinthine internal interconnections that it would
          be impossible to simplify by separation into loosely coupled
          or linked components.
       
          The city of Byzantium, later renamed Constantinople and then
          Istanbul, and the Byzantine Empire were vitiated by a
          bureaucratic overelaboration bordering on lunacy: quadruple
          banked agencies, dozens or even scores of superfluous levels
          and officials with high flown titles unrelated to their actual
          function, if any.
       
          Access to the Emperor and his council was controlled by
          powerful and inscrutable eunuchs and by rival sports factions.
       
          [Edward Gibbon, "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire"].
