The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Maurits Viljoen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 35.222 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, 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 5.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 15,761 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 447,480 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Knootoss's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, extreme political groups are outlawed, and parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence. 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 90,135th in the world and 14th in Western Atlantic for Most Pro-Market, scoring 44.89 on the Rand Index.
