The Holy Empire of The Knights of Saint Louis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Knight Master Commander Ludwig with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 3.429 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 medium-sized 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 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong knightly economy, worth 272 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,519 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Billions of bitcoins are being blown on orbital weapons development, black market eau de toilette is made in bathroom labs across the nation, The Knights of Saint Louis is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Knights of Saint Louis's national animal is the porpoise and its national religion is Orthodox Catholicism.
