Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 25.55 billion Knootians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 11,302 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 442,378 Atlantic Ducats, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, the minority party is vilified for everything from fires to earthquakes, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys. 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 247th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 178 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
