The Red Holy Catholic Division of The New Temple Knights is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Knight John Peter with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical population of 16.406 billion The New Temple Knightsians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Templarcardia. The average income tax rate is 80%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Temple Knights's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Ord.

The New Temple Knights is ranked 1st in Vatican II and 9,009th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 2.202 Stalins.
