Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
New Zealand has all three.  We're a secular society, and people's imaginary friends do not feature strongly in our politics.  We have no official state religion (but a few vestiges, like an opening prayer in Parliament).  We have legal and real freedom of conscience.

Oh, I forgot that one!

The Swedish monarch is still required of being of the pure lutheran faith in accordnace with the Augsburg confession. Apparently it is the royals that are against striking that and for some reason the politicians accept that.
