The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 24.874 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 10,872 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 437,084 Atlantic Ducats, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Knootoss, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Knootoss is ranked 14th in Western Atlantic and 114,064th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -5,190.35 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
