Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Protectorates of Altruistic Paladins is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Norton II with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, strictly enforced bedtime, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.605 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, with Social Policy, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Celestia. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Paladin economy, worth a remarkable 2,584 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 common. Average income is an amazing 222,731 Licets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Mount Celestia Times is sold out, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts". 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 7,683rd in the world and 32nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.99 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
