The Theocracy of Adalberht Timotheos-Knight of Christ is a tiny, pleasant nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, compulsory gun ownership, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, devout population of 18 million followers of Christ are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government is effectively ruled by the Department of Spirituality, although Defense and Welfare are also considered important, while Industry and Environment aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The Papal economy, worth 820 billion Stati Pontifici Scudoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Average income is 45,601 Stati Pontifici Scudoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 297,589 per year while the poor average 2,761, a ratio of 107 to 1.

Posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables, wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and you can tell when followers of Christ are being snarky by the fact their lips are moving. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Adalberht Timotheos-Knight of Christ's national animal is the Canis lupus italicis, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Adalberht Timotheos-Knight of Christ is ranked 284,815th in the world and 5,577th in the South Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -7.75 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
