The Christian Democratic Nation of Culture of Life is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gerard Majella with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.356 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, 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 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Culture-of-Life economy, worth a remarkable 1,922 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 125,188 vitas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Gerard Majella to meetings with foreign heads of state, and the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation. 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 19,727th in the world and 31st in Right to Life for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
