The Dystopia of The Righteous Order of Youth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bluebeard the Self-Proclaimed Great with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.215 billion Righteous Order of Youthians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Troy. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Righteous Order of Youthian economy, worth 57.6 trillion Crusades a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 26,026 Crusades, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, the government considers the rising number of McRonald's fast food restaurants to be great progress, and the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Righteous Order of Youth's national animal is the Vampire Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Righteous Order of Youth is ranked 127,915th in the world and 197th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 40.5 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
