Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 29.398 billion Knootians 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 minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Industry, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hartstad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 14,232 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 484,124 Atlantic Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lawyers are ordering red ink and 'Cease and Desist' rubber stamps in preparation for the return of copyright law, cheap and tasteless vegetables flood the markets, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Hartstad Times is sold out. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Knootoss's national animal is the guinea pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Knootoss is ranked 170,444th in the world and 11th in Western Atlantic for Most Devout, with 2.05 Prayers Per Hour.
