The Holy Empire of The Knights of Saint Louis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Knight Master Commander Ludwig with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 3.229 billion Knights of Saint Louis 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Holy See. The average income tax rate is 49.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong knightly economy, worth 256 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,569 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, and foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Knights of Saint Louis's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Orthodox Catholicism.

The Knights of Saint Louis is ranked 160,073rd in the world and 46th in Iran for Most Extreme, scoring 10.82 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
