The Christian Democratic Nation of Culture of Life is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gerard Majella with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, zero percent divorce rate, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.767 billion Culture-of-Lifers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 57.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Culture-of-Life economy, worth a remarkable 1,815 trillion vitas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. 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 122,968 vitas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, Culture-of-Lifers refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, and gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up. 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 169,246th in the world and 111th in Right to Life for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -77.64 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
