The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.319 billion Knowwear in Youtopians 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duck City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Knowwear in Youtopian economy, worth a remarkable 7,746 trillion deutsche marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 363,350 deutsche marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,397,251 per year while the poor average 21,331, a ratio of 112 to 1.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, burning members of the Order of Violet is the nation's favorite pastime, people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled, and oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Knowwear in Youtopia's national animal is the duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Duckism.

Knowwear in Youtopia is ranked 134,311th in the world and 3,906th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Poor Incomes, with 21,331.01 Standard Monetary Units.
