The Knights Templar of Dylar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Knight Listig with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.247 billion Dylarians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 68.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dylarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,019 trillion Doubloons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 123,579 Doubloons, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Dylar to be bombproof, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, Dylarian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and astronauts take one small step for Dylar and one giant step backward from confrontation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dylar's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Dylar is ranked 44,346th in the world and 1,369th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 108.49 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
