The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Maurits Viljoen with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 36.77 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 5.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 16,537 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 449,746 Atlantic Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, frisbee games on college quadrangles are grounds for expulsion, lottery winners spend most of their money on security, and the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework. 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 2,748th in the world and 3rd in Western Atlantic for Safest, scoring 136.75 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
