The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, fear of technology, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.305 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 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 a remarkable 7,737 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 363,165 deutsche marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,396,034 per year while the poor average 21,320, a ratio of 112 to 1.

Just as students finish their homework it's time for school, the country is preparing for war, ritual mummification is making a comeback, and the full title of Hon Darkwing Duck Vcte Mgve MF ARKIYLM GCKIYE runs to several pages. 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 222,763rd in the world and 6,314th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -45.4 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
