The Holy Empire of The Templar Papal New State
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Holy Empire of The Templar Papal New State is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Augustus XVII with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.424 billion Papal New Stateans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Templar Papal New Statean economy, worth 169 trillion Papal Lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,338 Papal Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The nation has nearly as many history museums as Papal New Stateans, Bears that venture near secret military bases are routinely executed for espionage, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, and no one gossips with Augustus XVII during diplomatic summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Templar Papal New State's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christian.
