The True Crusaders

Population1.368 billion



The Holy Empire of The True Crusaders is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Shrek with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.368 billion True Crusadersians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 31.9%.

The very strong True Crusadersian economy, worth 99.6 trillion rings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,799 rings, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, international terrorists often get their weapons supply in The True Crusaders, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, and the The True Crusaders Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The True Crusaders's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ogrein.

The True Crusaders is ranked 79,802nd in the world and 4,400th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,105.02 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
