Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rogue Nation of Obsessed Knitters is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jane Marple with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 12.077 billion Obsessed Knittersians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Friesian. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Obsessed Knittersian economy, worth 847 trillion purls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 70,139 purls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

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, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Obsessed Knitters's national animal is the amigurumi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Obsessed Knitters is ranked 171,917th in the world and 60th in New York for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -9.59 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
