The Archetypical Evil Empire of Rebels and Saints is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by nobody with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.035 billion rebels and saints are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Tenth Circle of Hell. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming rebellious and saintly economy, worth 378 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 124,738 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rebels and Saints's national animal is the fer-de-lance, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Arcane Magic.

Rebels and Saints is ranked 66,194th in the world and 1st in The Iron Domain for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 935.01 Tourists Per Hour.
