The Christian Democratic Nation of Culture of Life is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Gerard Majella with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.598 billion Culture-of-Lifers 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 relatively small, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Culture-of-Life economy, worth a remarkable 2,397 trillion vitas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. 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 an impressive 128,915 vitas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, and no one engages in 'locker room talk' any more. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Culture of Life's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Culture of Life is ranked 164,767th in the world and 67th in Right to Life for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -10.24 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
