The Christian Democratic Nation of Culture of Life is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gerard Majella with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.161 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Culture-of-Life economy, worth a remarkable 2,693 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 133,612 vitas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, Culture-of-Life watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, terrorists who are 17th cousins with the ex-wives of half-brothers of citizens are now exempt from the immigration ban, and boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard. 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 128th in the world and 1st in Right to Life for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.91 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
