Federation of Knights

The Kingdom of Federation of Knights is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 382 million Federation of Knightsians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Federation of Knightsian economy, worth 33.0 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,478 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Federation of Knights's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Federation of Knights is ranked 83,600th in the world and 3,961st in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 20.62 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
