The Kingdom of Northern Knights is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.182 billion Northern Knightsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Knightsian economy, worth 930 trillion Loonies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,694 Loonies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem. Northern Knights's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Knights is ranked 344th in the Rejected Realms and 20,465th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
