The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, triple-decker prams, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.959 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 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 an astonishing 10,010 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 extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 401,075 deutsche marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,997,414 per year while the poor average 45,450, a ratio of 43.9 to 1.

Armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, most academic research has ground to a halt, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies. 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 245,762nd in the world and 17,159th in the Rejected Realms for Most Income Equality, scoring 2.28 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
