Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 25.789 billion Knootians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hartstad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 11,490 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 445,561 Atlantic Ducats, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Knootoss's national animal is the guinea pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Knootoss is ranked 1st in Western Atlantic and 78th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 27 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
