The Colony of Isle of the Vatican is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.276 billion Tropical Islesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vatican. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Woodchip Exports.

The government spends millions of Silver Ounces every year prosecuting spammers, the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in SideWalk Zone, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isle of the Vatican's national animal is the cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Silver Ounce.

Isle of the Vatican is ranked 11th in SideWalk Zone and 106,333rd in the world for Best Weather, with -125 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
