|Faith||Way of the Knight|
The Empire of Ritterdorf is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.92 billion Ritterdorfians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ritterdorfia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Ritterdorfian economy, worth a remarkable 2,514 trillion rittergolds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 363,395 rittergolds, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.
Third world countries are rich in "I Love Ritterdorfia" t-shirts, it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, and the daily weather forecast often predicts light showers of debris. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ritterdorf's national animal is the knight, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Way of the Knight.
