Location: Lazarus

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Dominion of Sirian Knights is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 37.798 billion Sirian Knightsians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Sirian Knightsian economy, worth 217 trillion silver drakhmas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 5,756 silver drakhmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Euthanasia is legal, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence, and the government is seen to favor Catholics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sirian Knights's national animal is the silver dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sirian Knights is ranked 15,241st in the world and 834th in Lazarus for Largest Governments, scoring 29.07 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
