Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 28.292 billion Knootians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Industry and Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. 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 13,937 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 492,612 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All tariffs have been abolished, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. 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 155,036th in the world and 12th in Western Atlantic for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3.8 Tourists Per Hour.
