The Kingdom of Northern Knights is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 8.954 billion Northern Knightsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northern Knights City. The average income tax rate is 3.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Northern Knightsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,023 trillion Loonies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,259 Loonies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.
The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Northern Knights City Times is sold out, expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, half of Northern Knights's doctors can't speak the language, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Northern Knights's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
