The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.365 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. 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 6,218 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 338,605 deutsche marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,167,667 per year while the poor average 71,876, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

Darkwing Duck has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Knowwear in Youtopian lands. 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 236th in the world and 9th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 795.56 on the Hayek Index.
