The Catholic Republic of The Papal Federation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Jacopo Romani with a fair hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.5 billion Papalist Romans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Papal Roman economy, worth a remarkable 1,305 trillion Lire a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 124,353 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, photographs that show ladies' ankles are considered risqué, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, and children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Papal Federation's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Catholic Church.

The Papal Federation is ranked 1,754th in the world and 4th in Catholic for Safest, scoring 144.01 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
