“AD MAIOREM DEI GLORIAM”

Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the Rejected Realms
The Holy Kingdom of Arigentina is a massive, devout nation, ruled by King Pontufex the Pious with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.632 billion 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 government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic morass -- juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22%. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.
Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Arigentina Blood Tithe, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, and thieves are flogged in public for their crimes. Crime is a problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Arigentina's national animal is the koala, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the crown.
