The Black Weenie of Black Knight is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord of the Pit with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.547 billion Black Knights are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MTG. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Black Knight economy, worth a remarkable 4,195 trillion Black Manas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 214,657 Black Manas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,990,720 per year while the poor average 2,184, a ratio of 911 to 1.

The new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and "To Hell or to Marshland" is a common settler cry directed at native Brasilistanis. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Black Knight's national animal is the Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bad Moon.

Black Knight is ranked 244,303rd in the world and 10th in Glass Gallows for Best Weather, with -341 Meters Of Sunlight.
