The Holy Empire of Knowmare is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Adolf Hitlarm with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 827 million Knowmareans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Knowmarn. The average income tax rate is 28.1%.

The all-consuming Knowmarean economy, worth 76.3 trillion Dollaruskis a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 92,222 Dollaruskis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The incidence of wrist sprains is falling, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Knowmare flights to avoid the pay lavatories, the endangered saltwater humpback Giant Blue Winged Rat is only seen in captivity programs, and Adolf Hitlarm has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Knowmare's national animal is the Giant Blue Winged Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Knowmare is ranked 68,296th in the world and 2,512th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 169,652 Standard Monetary Units.
