The Roman Catholic Empire of Epeolatry is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Alfred Henderson with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.417 billion Epeolatrians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wordville. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Epeolatryian economy, worth 887 trillion words a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,263 words, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, and journalists often nap through tedious police press briefings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Epeolatry's national animal is the Northern Spotted Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Epeolatry is ranked 17,526th in the world and 22nd in Catholic for Smartest Citizens, with 67.24 quips per hour.
