The Constitutional Monarchy of Resurgent Catholic empire is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.741 billion Resurgent Catholic empireans 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 Industry. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Resurgent Catholic empirean economy, worth 874 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 152,292 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Resurgent Catholic empire's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Resurgent Catholic empire is ranked 13,661st in the world and 431st in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,230.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
