The Hellscape of Knechting is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Master with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.872 billion Slaves are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Versklavung. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 88.3%.
The Enslaved economy, worth 536 trillion Regrets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 110,208 Regrets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 385,345 per year while the poor average 22,906, a ratio of 16.8 to 1.
Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, you gots to be part of the Party to get in to the party, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Knechting's national animal is the Minotaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Slavism.
