The United Papal States of Cologne and Karlsburg is a gargantuan, devout nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-working, cynical population of 11.543 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defence. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Beef-Based Agriculture.
Children are raised bilingual from an early age, the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Cologne and Karlsburg's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance. Crime is moderate. Cologne and Karlsburg's national animal is the Casinian Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Colognian Catholicism, and its currency is the Imperial Opi.
