The Archetypical Evil Empire of Rebels and Saints is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by nobody with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.746 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 50.5%.

The all-consuming rebellious and saintly economy, worth 345 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 rampant. Average income is an impressive 125,705 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Frisbee games on college quadrangles are grounds for expulsion, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, and mysterious black helicopters menace farmers to ensure compliance with straitjacketing agricultural policies. 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 193,370th in the world and 13th in United Nations of Liberalia for Most Politically Free, scoring 5.5 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
