The Queendom of WeKnow is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 283 million Geniuses 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mindalia. The average income tax rate is 68.7%.

The strong Ingenious economy, worth 20.1 trillion Knowledges a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,169 Knowledges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WeKnow's national animal is the Rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

WeKnow is ranked 175,494th in the world and 7,581st in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.14 Crimes Per Hour.
