The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maurits Viljoen with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 34.865 billion Knootians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Defense also on the agenda, 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 5.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 15,569 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 446,579 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, government projects are full of waste, and the military struggles with recruitment. Crime is totally unknown. Knootoss's national animal is the guinea pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Knootoss is ranked 24,668th in the world and 10th in Western Atlantic for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,760.73 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
