The Imperial Protectorates of Altruistic Paladins is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Norton II with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.179 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 government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Celestia. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Paladin economy, worth a remarkable 2,895 trillion Licets a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 219,697 Licets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a dearth of space for new houses, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, much of Altruistic Paladins's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and it is illegal to make racist remarks in public. 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 42,267th in the world and 142nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Income Equality, scoring 53.95 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
