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 a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.096 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 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 12,379 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 456,864 Atlantic Ducats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,340,536 per year while the poor average 122,739, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, the nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and the Knootoss Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. 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 133rd in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 15 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
