The Kingdom of Knights Almeria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by presidente Don Gines HZ with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 12.763 billion Knights Almerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alcazaba de Almerķa. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Knights Almerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,234 trillion Pesetas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 96,710 Pesetas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Knights Almeria has found 1 easter egg). Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Knights Almeria's national animal is the Scorpio, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
