The Indestructible Black Knights of Akeroyd is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Warchief Bradicus with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.697 billion Black Knights are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, citizens must pay to enjoy Akeroyd's pristine beaches, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and locally produced computer games are being released faster than gamers can play them. 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 2nd in The Kingdom of Sparta and 10,698th in the world for Safest, scoring 319 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
