The Dictatorship of Kniseland is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 567 million Kniselandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adesdian. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kniselandian economy, worth 46.1 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,262 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, a government program is underway to revitalize Kniseland's beaches, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, and movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kniseland's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kniseland is ranked 177,416th in the world and 1,690th in 10000 Islands for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 47.56 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
