Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperial Protectorates of Altruistic Paladins is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Norton II with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.605 billion Altruistic Paladins are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy and Defense also on the agenda, 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 96.7%.

The very strong Altruistic Paladin economy, worth a remarkable 1,741 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 181,319 Licets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Altruistic Paladins, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", most citizens in Altruistic Paladins are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population. 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 34th in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 2,396th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 23 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
