Why didn't protestants make their own "Vatican"?

Did Catholics get the structure of Catholic Church from the New Testament? If so, why didn't protestants create their own Catholic Church? Wouldn't not following what the New Testament says be against it?

probably because it is unnecessary to spread the gospel. One of the points of being a christian is to save the world from hell, not create politics.

Because with all the different denominations, there 'd be thousands of protestant vaticans. Unless you mean a 'one vatican to rule them all' in which case, that won't work either. They all broke off from each other for a reason.

The New Testament structure ends at the Elder/Priest/Bishop level.

That doesn't make any sense. That's like saying "non-Americans are American."

Not in theology. Every denomination claims to be the One True Faith/Church, even the non-denominationals. Though, non-denominationalism is Low-Church mild Evangelical "theology", just without a proper Church.
