The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 25.401 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, 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 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 11,138 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 438,491 Atlantic Ducats, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

The armed forces have designated 'murder teams' that root out rebels in Brasilistan, captured Brasilistani POWs are staying in 5-star hotels, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. 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 229th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 78 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
