The Indestructible Black Knights of Akeroyd is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Warchief Bradicus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.624 billion Black Knights are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and Healthcare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle Black. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, and citizens must pay to enjoy Akeroyd's pristine beaches. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Akeroyd's national animal is the Devil Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Marine Corps, and its currency is the skull of our enemies.

Akeroyd is ranked 4th in The Kingdom of Sparta and 14,592nd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 188 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
