Knight-Night

The Commonwealth of Knight-Night is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 412 million Knight-Nightians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.1%.

The Knight-Nightian economy, worth 23.1 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 56,082 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, and the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news. Crime is moderate. Knight-Night's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Knight-Night is ranked 39,236th in the world and 139th in Birb for Most Primitive, scoring 28.81 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
