All sounds good to me. These are the offices of a nation-state. Vatican City is a sovereign country dealing with highly sensitive and classified documents as a long-time player on the world stage. Documents which could, quite possibly, result in war or peace.
They've got a security problem, someone has been lifting the documents. The head of the nation-state says "Fix this." So they put in new security
measures. Those include handing out chipped ID cards, which sound a lot like those which American school kids are getting.
What's the problem, again?
