The Holy Kingdom of Novo Vaticanus is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Alexander with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.404 billion Vaticanusians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San ┴quina. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Vaticanusian economy, worth 348 trillion pecunias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 145,119 pecunias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 524,784 per year while the poor average 28,638, a ratio of 18.3 to 1.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and baiting is a national sport. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novo Vaticanus's national animal is the lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Novo Vaticanus is ranked 105,054th in the world and 53rd in Catholic for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 652.2 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
