The Knights Templar of Dylar is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Knight Listig with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 9.779 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, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dylarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,177 trillion Doubloons a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,388 Doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 110,941st in the world and 4,513th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.12 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
