The Constitutional Monarchy of Resurgent Catholic empire is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.837 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 72.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Resurgent Catholic empirean economy, worth 679 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, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. 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 140,580 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, the only things Resurgent Catholic empireans vote on are cutest Eagle competitions, and no one is quite sure what many government officials look like. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 18,472nd in the world and 541st in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,234.98 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
