The Kingdom of King Louis XIV is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Louie Louie with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 8.898 billion XIVians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Versailles. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong King Louis XIVian economy, worth 563 trillion Francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,368 Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Days begin with afternoon tea, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and atheists on vacation find Catholicism's scriptures make useful doorstops. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Louis XIV's national animal is the Lion Rampart, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

King Louis XIV is ranked 36,557th in the world and 1st in Vandal Kingdom for Largest Populations, with 8.90 billion Capita.
