The Templar Papal New State

Population1.684 billion

LeaderAugustus XVII

CurrencyPapal Lira

The Holy Empire of The Templar Papal New State is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Augustus XVII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.684 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 91.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Templar Papal New Statean economy, worth 194 trillion Papal Lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,657 Papal Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, rich people sell their mansions to pay for endless rows of mobile homes, heterosexuality is considered positive proof of fitness to parent, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. 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.

The Templar Papal New State is ranked 17,701st in the world and 293rd in Europe for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,074.09 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
