The Holy Empire of Pope Landia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Pope Jon with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.29 billion Pope-landians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pope-opolis. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pope Landian economy, worth 449 trillion Papal lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 136,690 Papal lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Papal lira charge on their phone bill, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pope Landia's national animal is the Hippo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Pope Landia is ranked 84,708th in the world and 110th in 21st Century Rome for Most Authoritarian, with 765.89 milliStalins.
