The Templar High Council

Population11.169 billion

LeaderKnight-Commander Cyrus Reticio


The Order of The Templar High Council is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Knight-Commander Cyrus Reticio with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 11.169 billion Templars 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosewall. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Templaric economy, worth a remarkable 1,069 trillion Crosses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,776 Crosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and concussed Assassinball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Templar High Council's national animal is the Assassin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Templar High Council is ranked 161,303rd in the world and 11th in The Council of The Multiverse for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -12.69 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
