The Commonwealth of Jovian Knights is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Saint Mahomes with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 7.554 billion Jovians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindas. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Jovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,438 trillion Health Bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 190,475 Health Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, restaurateurs put a lot of effort into persuading customers to accept wafer-thin mints, and soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jovian Knights's national animal is the Taiga, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Diamond Hands.

Jovian Knights is ranked 2,186th in the world and 113th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 51.05 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
