The Holy Empire of The Templar Papal New State is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Augustus XVII with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.808 billion Papal New Stateans 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 92.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Templar Papal New Statean economy, worth 214 trillion Papal Lire a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,561 Papal Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Papal New Stateans any less frightened, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, and dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Templar Papal New State's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
