The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maurits Viljoen with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 37.661 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hartstad. The average income tax rate is 8.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 16,880 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 448,233 Atlantic Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens hear a diversity of opinions from a range of billionaire-owned corporations, grocery store cereal aisles resemble a Piet Mondrian work, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and many friends and relatives of Maurits Viljoen have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. 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 222,426th in the world and 25th in Western Atlantic for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 14.58 Tourists Per Hour.
