The Templar Papal New State

LeaderAugustus XVII

CurrencyPapal Lira

The Holy Empire of The Templar Papal New State is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Augustus XVII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.576 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Templar Papal New Statean economy, worth 722 trillion Papal Lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,940 Papal Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety, college athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, excessive gerrymandering has earned The Templar Papal New State the nickname 'The Democratic Dictatorship', and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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.

The Templar Papal New State is ranked 15,006th in the world and 257th in Europe for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,270.05 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
