The Hedonistic Soirée of Pope Saint Alexander VI is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Papa Alessandro VI with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and aversion to nipples. The humorless, devout population of 12.877 billion Pope Saint Alexander VIians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Status Civitatis Vaticanæ. The average income tax rate is 53.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pope Saint Alexander VIian economy, worth a remarkable 1,761 trillion Indulgences a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,811 Indulgences, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, Pope Saint Alexander VIians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and foreign leaders are advising that Papa Alessandro VI's letters must have gotten lost in the mail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pope Saint Alexander VI's national animal is the Lamb, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Pope Saint Alexander VI is ranked 30,427th in the world and 42nd in Catholic for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.06 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
