The Templar High Council

Population14.173 billion

LeaderKnight-Commander Cyrus Reticio


The Order of The Templar High Council is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Knight-Commander Cyrus Reticio with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 14.173 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 1,411 trillion Crosses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 99,589 Crosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, concussed Assassinball players cannot remember their lineup position, and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. 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 161,526th in the world and 9th in The Council of The Multiverse for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 10,158.18 Standard Monetary Units.
