The Colony of Isle of the Vatican is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.387 billion Tropical Islesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat. 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 7th in SideWalk Zone and 337th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 409 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
