Expo Knitani

Population23 million


The Republic of Expo Knitani is a small, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 23 million Expo Knitanians 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 tiny government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The Expo Knitanian economy, worth 1.50 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 65,414 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, single celebrities have to repeatedly prove their chastity to avoid being married off to infatuated fans, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and the Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Expo Knitani's national animal is the lion.

Expo Knitani is ranked 65,580th in the world and 1st in the republic of yeah for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,604.48 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
