The Universal Masters Nation of The Symbiote Paladin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Henry IX with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.789 billion Symbiote Paladins 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 enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Empty. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong a Symbiote Paladin economy, worth a remarkable 2,046 trillion Universe Cystals a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 86,034 Universe Cystals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Symbiote Paladin's national animal is the Donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shadow Church of England and Scotland.

The Symbiote Paladin is ranked 21,100th in the world and 1st in The Universe for Longest Average Lifespans, with 88.96 Years.
