The Knights Templar of Dylar is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Knight Listig with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 9.816 billion Dylarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dylarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,195 trillion Doubloons a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 121,796 Doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, urbanites are banned from bucolic settings for safety concerns, and Dylar has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dylar's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Dylar is ranked 21,556th in the world and 605th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 121,796.72 Standard Monetary Units.
