The Divine Imperium of The Order of the Holy Inquisitors is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Cardinal Fang with an iron fist, and notable for its fear of technology, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.712 billion Inquisitors are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Vatican. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.8%.

The powerhouse Inquisitorsian economy, worth 684 trillion Heretics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 184,284 Heretics, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, babysitters are a thing of the past, and foreign nationals are widely distrusted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. The Order of the Holy Inquisitors's national animal is the Pagan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Red Orthodoxy.

The Order of the Holy Inquisitors is ranked 72,856th in the world and 306th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
