We welcome The Empire of The Winter Knights (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=The+winter+knights), as the 223rd member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Empire of The Winter Knights is a large, devout nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 32 million are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defence, Religion & Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 31%, but much higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Book Publishing and Uranium Mining.
Genetic researchers have been expelled, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and gambling is outlawed. Crime is moderate. The Winter Knights's national animal is the snow shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the dollar.
