|Faith||Way of the Knight|
The Unholy Medieval Empire of Ritterdorf is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.555 billion Ritterdorfians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ritterdorfia. The average income tax rate is 69.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Ritterdorfian economy, worth a remarkable 3,425 trillion Rittergolds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 400,354 Rittergolds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.
Hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Ritterdorfian Navy, and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ritterdorf's national animal is the knight, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Way of the Knight.
