The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, lack of airports, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.054 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 7,528 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 357,595 deutsche marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,411,604 per year while the poor average 19,688, a ratio of 122 to 1.

Tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, god-fearing citizens can be seen in prayer circles around the Big Max impact crater, an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of Duck City, and citizens who become homeless are immediately executed. 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 57th in the world and 4th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 24,275.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
