The Dutch Democratic Republic of Knootoss is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Maurits Viljoen with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 37.289 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Defense also on the agenda, 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 7.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Knootian economy, worth an astonishing 16,702 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 447,931 Atlantic Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, students abandon classrooms for online education, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, and the government has enacted freedom of information. 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 231st in the world and 1st in Western Atlantic for Highest Poor Incomes, with 327,096.44 Standard Monetary Units.
