The Crusading Order of The Teutonic Knights is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.597 billion Teutonic Knights are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marienburg. The average income tax rate is 31.8%.
The strong Teutonic economy, worth 409 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 47,611 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.
The Teutonic Knights has designated Marienburg as its capital city, women are often jailed for failing to fetch their husband's slippers, the government is seen to favor Catholics, and historical fiction has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force. The Teutonic Knights's national animal is the two-headed Eagle.
