The Black Swan Hegemony of Christ Triumphant is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Cadmus Maculatus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, national health service, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.818 billion Black Monks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. 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 1,955 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 336,170 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Black Swan flag, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Christ Triumphant's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Midnight Priory.

Christ Triumphant is ranked 1,362nd in the world and 5th in The Horde for Highest Average Incomes, with 336,170.68 Standard Monetary Units.
