The Indestructible Black Knights of Akeroyd is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Bradacus Maximus with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 14.664 billion Akeroydians 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 enormous, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle Black. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Akeroydian economy, worth a remarkable 1,287 trillion skull of our enemy a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,781 skull of our enemy, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Akeroyd's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, elections have recently been reintroduced to Akeroyd, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is Marine Corps.
