The Frontman of the Clergy of Papa Emeritus IV is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Papa Emeritus IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.595 billion ghouls are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ministry. The average income tax rate is 66.9%.

The Papa Emeritus IVian economy, worth 77.3 trillion mummy dusts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,439 mummy dusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government regrets to say that it is forced to make cuts to citizens, human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', and adulthood begins with the creation of an email account. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Papa Emeritus IV's national animal is the ghoul, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Papa Emeritus IV is ranked 199,723rd in the world and 460th in The Blades for Most Avoided, scoring 1.8 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
