Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Protectorates of Altruistic Paladins is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Norton II with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.166 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Celestia. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Paladin economy, worth a remarkable 2,697 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 221,730 Licets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Licet mansions. 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 650th in the world and 2nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 537.53 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
