The Monty Python Kingdom of The Black Knight- is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 13.752 billion Black Knight-ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Black Knight-ian economy, worth 168 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 12,283 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Black Knight-'s national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Black Knight- is ranked 105,569th in the world and 41st in Middle Earth for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 667.45 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
