OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Kingdom of Northern Knights is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.494 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. The average income tax rate is 7%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Tourism.

Northern Knights's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the country is constantly under siege trying to protect soccer moms who've settled in occupied territory (Northern Knights has found 1 easter egg), and businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Northern Knights's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Loonie.

Northern Knights is ranked 649th in Europeia and 95,662nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.079 Stalins.
