The Christian Democratic Nation of Culture of Life is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Gerard Majella with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.773 billion Culture-of-Lifers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 8.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Culture-of-Life economy, worth 848 trillion vitas a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 96,721 vitas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Culture of Life's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.
