Knightblood 10

Population1.324 billion

AnimalAwakened swords

The Most Serene Republic of Knightblood 10 is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.324 billion Knightblood 10ians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The Knightblood 10ian economy, worth 66.7 trillion swords a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 50,344 swords, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, an inkwell of goats' blood is supplied on school desks across the nation, and eight out of ten children believe hard lemonade gives you cirrhosis of the liver. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Knightblood 10's national animal is the Awakened swords.

Knightblood 10 is ranked 142,673rd in the world and 928th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -5.48 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
