The Indestructible Black Knights of Akeroyd is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bradacus Maximus with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.855 billion Akeroydians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle Black. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Akeroydian economy, worth a remarkable 1,622 trillion skull of our enemieses a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 96,261 skull of our enemieses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, citizens must pay to enjoy Akeroyd's pristine beaches, locally produced computer games are being released faster than gamers can play them, and political dissidents are cut off from essential services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Akeroyd's national animal is the Devil Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Akeroyd is ranked 43,846th in the world and 17th in Unknown for Smartest Citizens, with 38.84 Quips Per Hour.
