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 deadly medical pandemics, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 29.952 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 prioritizes Education, although Industry, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. 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 13,217 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 441,292 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. 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 54th in the world and 1st in Western Atlantic for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 43,811 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
