The Holy Empire of The Knights of Saint Louis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Knight Master Commander Ludwig with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 3.721 billion Knights of Saint Louis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Holy See. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong knightly economy, worth 271 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,006 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of bitcoins are being blown on orbital weapons development, black market eau de toilette is made in bathroom labs across the nation, The Knights of Saint Louis is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Knights of Saint Louis's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Orthodox Catholicism.

The Knights of Saint Louis is ranked 180,363rd in the world and 35th in Syria for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -5.36 on the Hayek Index.
