Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The 5th King of Uruk of Nationalist State of Knox is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Gilgamesh with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.708 billion Nationalist States of Knoxian are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Knoxopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Nationalist State of Knoxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,706 trillion Knoxuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 254,386 Knoxuses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,181,856 per year while the poor average 5,062, a ratio of 431 to 1.

Once-popular honeymoon destinations have become ghosts towns due to a lack of visitors, hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and the government's only official statement on the burning down of Knoxopolis was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Nationalist State of Knox's national animal is the Humbaba, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sumerianism.

Nationalist State of Knox is ranked 2nd in The Great Kingdom of Prussia and 2,787th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
