The Free Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Charlotte van Jonkervelde with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 41.378 billion Knootians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hartstad. The average income tax rate is 16.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 19,526 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 471,912 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Prime Minister Charlotte van Jonkervelde's most personal functions, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, prodigal children celebrate as charitable bequests plummet, and handling people's data is proving an immersive experience. Crime is totally unknown. Knootoss's national animal is the silver gull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Knootoss is ranked 262,648th in the world and 31st in Western Atlantic for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -31.91 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
