The Archetypical Evil Empire of Rebels and Saints is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by nobody with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.101 billion rebels and saints are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Tenth Circle of Hell. The average income tax rate is 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming rebellious and saintly economy, worth 387 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 124,822 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rebels and Saints's national animal is the fer-de-lance, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Arcane Magic.

Rebels and Saints is ranked 168,261st in the world and 2nd in The Iron Domain for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
