The Crusader State of The New Peoples of the Nile is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Knight Vibius with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.483 billion Crusaders are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Giza. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.3%.

The very strong Knight economy, worth a remarkable 1,499 trillion Nile pounds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 273,470 Nile pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,102,118 per year while the poor average 45,351, a ratio of 24.3 to 1.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, The New Peoples of the Nile has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and the legal system for the political class is completely separate from the one for normal citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Peoples of the Nile's national animal is the Scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholic.

The New Peoples of the Nile is ranked 171,583rd in the world and 177th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Least Corrupt Governments, with 1.58 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
