Regional Influence: Superpower

Location: Vatican II


The Red Holy Catholic Division of The New Temple Knights is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Knight John Peter with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 17.537 billion Knights are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Industry aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Templarcardia. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped The New Temple Knightsian economy, worth 588 trillion Ords a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 33,562 Ords, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, The New Temple Knights's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over Vatican II, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The New Temple Knights's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The New Temple Knights is ranked 13th in Vatican II and 113,786th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
