The Holy Empire of The Knights of Saint Louis is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Knight Master Commander Ludwig with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 5.076 billion Knights of Saint Louis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Holy See. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong knightly economy, worth 364 trillion bitcoins a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,869 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Knights of Saint Louis's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Orthodox Catholicism.

The Knights of Saint Louis is ranked 220,283rd in the world and 115th in Japan for Fattest Citizens, with 6.76 Obesity Rate.
