The Holy Empire of The Templar Papal New State is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Augustus XVII with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.613 billion Papal New Stateans 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Templar Papal New Statean economy, worth 358 trillion Papal Lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 137,379 Papal Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The endangered saltwater humpback Bear is only seen in captivity programs, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', schoolchildren's "what I did on my holidays" essays tend to be somewhat homogeneous, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Templar Papal New State's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
