The Imperial Protectorates of Altruistic Paladins is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Norton II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.798 billion Altruistic Paladins love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy and Defense 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 97.0%.
The powerhouse Altruistic Paladin economy, worth a remarkable 1,911 trillion Licets a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,107 Licets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and the government pours millions of Licets into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime is totally unknown. Altruistic Paladins's national animal is the canid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
