The Federal Commonwealth of Knichus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Dragomir Cernat with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.169 billion Knichans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nycero. The average income tax rate is 4.7%.

The strong Knichan economy, worth 548 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 76,575 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending is on the increase, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Knichus's national animal is the Rhino, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Knichus is ranked 40,340th in the world and 1,218th in Lazarus for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 74.36 Workforce Participation Rate.
