The Holy Empire of The Papal Catholic States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Pius XIII with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.994 billion Papists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Vatican City State. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Papist economy, worth 259 trillion Papal Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,962 Papal Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, a man's 250 square-foot apartment is his castle, religious education is a new government priority, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Papal Catholic States's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.
