The Theocracy of Theatrical Theists is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Rav-Pope-Guru-Caliph Adam DCLXVI with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.421 billion Theatrical Theists 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Healthcare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.8%.

The Theatrically Theistic economy, worth 249 trillion Shekels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 45,988 Shekels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 165,115 per year while the poor average 9,177, a ratio of 18.0 to 1.

Hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, the fattest folk in Theatrical Theists look to be the happiest ones, citizens sport solarium-kissed tans that are perfectly even except for the occasional melanoma, and glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Theatrical Theists's national animal is the Holy Lamb, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Televangelism.

Theatrical Theists is ranked 40,248th in the world and 18th in The Heartland for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
