The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, complete lack of prisons, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.832 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 7,398 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 355,156 deutsche marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,315,785 per year while the poor average 21,556, a ratio of 107 to 1.

Darkwing Duck's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, and the government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof. 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 32,119th in the world and 511th in the Rejected Realms for Most Stationary, with 465.1525842466 Days.
