The Holy Empire of The Papal Catholic States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Pius XIII with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.562 billion Papists 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Vatican City State. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Papist economy, worth 204 trillion Papal Crowns a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,074 Papal Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, Papist politicians are often described as having more style than substance, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, and coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Papal Catholic States's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Papal Catholic States is ranked 208,727th in the world and 8,696th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 13,107.48 Standard Monetary Units.
