The Archetypical Evil Empire of Rebels and Saints is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by nobody with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.633 billion rebels and saints are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Tenth Circle of Hell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.5%.

The all-consuming rebellious and saintly economy, worth 326 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 123,827 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

There is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, mandatory daycare is provided by the government, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and the end of communism came with retail rather than revolution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rebels and Saints's national animal is the fer-de-lance, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Arcane Magic.

Rebels and Saints is ranked 71,507th in the world and 4th in United Nations of Liberalia for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,045.42 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
