The Holy Catholic State of Estado Novo Portugues is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Afonso Salazar with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, compulsory vegetarianism, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.485 billion Portuguese are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisboa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 85.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Portuguese economy, worth a remarkable 1,730 trillion salazars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 203,899 salazars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 820,092 per year while the poor average 33,926, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

Prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers, metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, anyone who doesn't attend Official Governmental Religious Services is fined, and the sanitised and dull music festivals of Estado Novo Portugues are famed for their reasonable volume levels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Estado Novo Portugues's national animal is the Lusitano Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Estado Novo Portugues is ranked 30,551st in the world and 43rd in Catholic for Most Influential, scoring 780 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
