The Imperial Protectorates of Altruistic Paladins is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Norton II with a fair hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.606 billion Altruistic Paladins enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Celestia. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Paladin economy, worth a remarkable 2,827 trillion Licets a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 224,286 Licets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, Book Publishing facilities are being turned into canid habitats, moonshine has made a resurgence, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown. Altruistic Paladins's national animal is the canid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Altruistic Paladins is ranked 178,832nd in the world and 241st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.84 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
