The Dominion of Knowledge is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The All Knowing One with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.828 billion Knowledgites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Custodian. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Knowledgean economy, worth 609 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 215,631 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'Wolfdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, and tourists call Knowledgean beach towns "the fine coastline". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Knowledge's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is yeet.

Knowledge is ranked 161,738th in the world and 146th in The United Federations for Most Devout, with 2.8 Prayers Per Hour.
