Welcome Poetic Knight

We welcome The Republic of Poetic Knight (, as the 160th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.

The Republic of Poetic Knight is a tiny, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Religion & Spirituality, and Commerce. Income tax is unheard of. A robust private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Gambling and Uranium Mining.
Crime is a major problem. Poetic Knight's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the poem.
