The Holy Empire of The Papal Catholic States is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Pius XIII with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, public floggings, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.599 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 large, 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 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Papist economy, worth 211 trillion Papal Crowns a year, is fairly diversified 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 132,348 Papal Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and The Papal Catholic States isn't what it used to be. 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.

The Papal Catholic States is ranked 18,433rd in the world and 833rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,370.09 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
