The Christian Democratic Nation of Culture of Life is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gerard Majella with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.283 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 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Culture-of-Life economy, worth a remarkable 2,082 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 127,918 vitas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, long-wed spouses often regret proposals they made when they were twenty, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. 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 6,910th in the world and 2nd in Right to Life for Largest Populations, with 16.3 billion Capita.
