The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, enslaved workforce, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.205 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. 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 10,256 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 406,918 deutsche marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,570,547 per year while the poor average 72,430, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

Carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing, Harry Potter books are banned, families must live in a village for a century before they get any say in how it runs, and government policies change at the drop of a rabbit. 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 258,289th in the world and 6,792nd in the Rejected Realms for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.49 percentage of bribes refused.
