The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with a fair hand, and renowned for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.485 billion, 13.361 billion of whom are zombies, Knootians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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. The average income tax rate is 24%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Gambling.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. 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 365th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 35 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Knootoss is currently considering its options.
