The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, strictly enforced bedtime, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.264 billion Knowwear in Youtopians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duck City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Knowwear in Youtopian economy, worth a remarkable 8,333 trillion deutsche marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 374,294 deutsche marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,775,909 per year while the poor average 46,554, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Parents must decide between buying food and taking their children to the park, war criminals are given full state funerals, ghost regiments exist only on paper, and CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Knowwear in Youtopia's national animal is the duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Duckism.

Knowwear in Youtopia is ranked 241,596th in the world and 6,772nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring -74.36 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
