The Holy See of Ecclesiastical Dominions is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Martin Saint James with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.317 billion Ecclesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaticanus. The average income tax rate is 33.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ecclesian economy, worth 295 trillion Indulgences a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 89,040 Indulgences, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Martin Saint James's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, a government program is underway to revitalize Ecclesiastical Dominions's beaches, the government pours millions of Indulgences into rehabilitation programs annually, and the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ecclesiastical Dominions's national animal is the Heavenly Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Ecclesiastical Dominions is ranked 100,562nd in the world and 45th in International Democratic Union for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 861.46 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
