The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maurits Viljoen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 35.401 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, outspoken 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 5.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 15,843 trillion Atlantic Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 447,557 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Knootians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, and marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home. 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 54,970th in the world and 12th in Western Atlantic for Most Corrupt Governments, with 13.17 Kickbacks Per Hour.
