The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.951 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 aren't funded at all. 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 8,604 trillion deutsche marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 374,921 deutsche marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,517,071 per year while the poor average 61,761, a ratio of 24.6 to 1.

The national water supply has entered detox, vacationing Knowwear in Youtopians expect to be treated as royalty, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. 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 14th in the world and 2nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Primitive, scoring 1,160.44 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
