The Theocracy of Ad Honorem Dei is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prince-Archabbott Daniel with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.016 billion Angeli are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of De Civitate Dei. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Angelican economy, worth 575 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,063 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is believed that behind every great man is a terrified subservient woman, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Angelican Liberator", gossip magazines have pictures of Prince-Archabbott Daniel sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, and stale 'yo mamma' insults have been replaced by 'your maternal DNA' insults. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ad Honorem Dei's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Ad Honorem Dei is ranked 134,541st in the world and 3,467th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
