Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Red Holy Catholic Division of The New Temple Knights is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Knight John Peter with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, ban on automobiles, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 21.144 billion Knights are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Templarcardia. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The A New Temple Knightsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,197 trillion Ords a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,649 Ords, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending billions of Ords on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist, Templarcardia's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII'. 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, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The New Temple Knights is ranked 152,518th in the world and 6th in Vatican II for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 26.14 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
