Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jan Willem Daatman with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 30.461 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, although 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 13,319 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 437,253 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, protests are legal but strictly supervised, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, and toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters. 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 95th in the world and 1st in Western Atlantic for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 65,782.57 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
