The Black Swan Hegemony of Christ Triumphant is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Cadmus Maculatus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.36 billion Black Monks are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goliath Bluffs. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Black Swan economy, worth a remarkable 4,318 trillion black marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 416,826 black marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Christ Triumphant's border, the government is avowedly secular, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and the government funds large training centres to turn Black Swans into functioning members of society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Christ Triumphant's national animal is the Black Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Midnight Priory.

Christ Triumphant is ranked 15,038th in the world and 5th in The Horde for Most Influential, scoring 3,398 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
