The Rogue Nation of Obsessed Knitters is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jane Marple with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 729 million, 725 million of whom are zombies, Obsessed Knittersians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Friesian. The average income tax rate is 82%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Tourism.

Obsessed Knitters's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime is totally unknown. Obsessed Knitters's national animal is the amigurumi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the purl.

Obsessed Knitters is ranked 72nd in New York and 101,063rd in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

Obsessed Knitters is currently considering its options.
