The Black Swan Hegemony of Christ Triumphant is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cadmus Maculatus with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 4.959 billion Black Monks are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goliath Bluffs. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Black Swan economy, worth a remarkable 1,565 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 315,655 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Christ Triumphant has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and the Black Swan Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Christ Triumphant's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Midnight Priory.

Christ Triumphant is ranked 25th in the world and 1st in The Horde for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 5,189.76 Bank.
