OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.212 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as the Environment and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hartstad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Gambling.

The populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, and the people of Knootoss are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Knootoss's national animal is the guinea pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Atlantic Ducat.

Knootoss is ranked 1st in Western Atlantic and 250th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 21 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
