The Holy Empire of The Papal Catholic States is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Pius XIII with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.9 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 enormous, 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 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Papist economy, worth 247 trillion Papal Crowns a year, is 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 130,198 Papal Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, and Pope-Emperor Pius XIII is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. 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 15,530th in the world and 1,105th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 18.86 Bank.
