Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Matriarchy of Our Lady of The Nunnish Nations is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mother Superior with an iron fist, and remarkable for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 27 billion nuns are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Environment. Income tax is unheard of.

The enormous but underdeveloped sisterly economy, worth a remarkable 1,301 trillion rosary beads a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. 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 48,189 rosary beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All fantasy fiction has officially been deemed non-canon, public urination is on the increase, smiling in public is seen as criminally suspicious behaviour, and poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Nunnish Nations's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Nunnish Nations is ranked 179,445th in the world and 64th in Catholic for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -46.88 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
