The Holy Empire of Knowmare is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 635 million Knowmareans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Knowmarn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.2%.

The all-consuming Knowmarean economy, worth 57.8 trillion Dollaruskis a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 91,095 Dollaruskis, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, the education system has gotten a recent boost in spending, and unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Knowmare's national animal is the Giant Blue Winged Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Knowmare is ranked 7,537th in the world and 321st in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,597.97 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
