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 deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.646 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, although Spirituality and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Healthcare aren't funded at all. 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 259 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 46,001 Shekels, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 259,923 per year while the poor average 3,997, a ratio of 65.0 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 147,218th in the world and 9th in The Heartland for Most Pacifist, with 8.92 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
