Bautista Texidor is always right
Catholicism is the official religion in Aguazul, with approximately 85% of the population identifying themselves as Catholic in the last census before it was mandated. The remainder include practitioners of indigenous religions (often, the two faiths have overlapped--Nanabos, with his rabbit and turtle familiars, is an (in)famous trickster spirit in native mythology) and nonreligious individuals (especially among communists, many of whom have become disillusioned with traditional religion). There is no realistic possibility of eliminating alternative belief, despite Catholicism's proclamation as the national religion. Formally linking the government with the Catholic church has lead to the continued promotion of conservative social values. For example, a general tendency towards large families is partially accountable for the nation's high rate of population growth.
