Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.946 billion Knootians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Industry and Defense 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 13,740 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. Average income is an amazing 491,689 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, 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 781st in the world and 1st in Western Atlantic for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 12,055.46 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
