The Holy Empire of Knightblood is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.988 billion Knightbloodians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 55.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Knightbloodian economy, worth 308 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 51,472 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Knightblood's national animal is the Scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
