The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.282 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, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, 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 8,334 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 extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 374,027 deutsche marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,795,867 per year while the poor average 45,486, a ratio of 39.5 to 1.

The police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', and astronomers are flocking to Knowwear in Youtopia to take advantage of its clear night skies. 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 241,582nd in the world and 6,732nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -58.91 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
