The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Maurits Viljoen with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, otherworldly petting zoo, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 37.235 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 7.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 16,675 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 common. Average income is an amazing 447,835 Atlantic Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, tabloids coo over Maurits Viljoen's expected child, war vets look after war animals, and airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps. 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 1,374th in the world and 1st in Western Atlantic for Rudest Citizens, with 266.45 Insults Per Minute.
