The Imperial Protectorates of Altruistic Paladins is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Norton II with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.741 billion Altruistic Paladins enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Celestia. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Paladin economy, worth a remarkable 2,860 trillion Licets a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 224,478 Licets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown. Altruistic Paladins's national animal is the canid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Altruistic Paladins is ranked 1,398th in the world and 24th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.81 Years.
