The Weekly Witch of Patchouli-Knowledge is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The humorless, devout population of 3.292 billion Patchouli-Knowledgeans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Patchouli-Knowledgean economy, worth 397 trillion rtbrtbrtbs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,861 rtbrtbrtbs, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Patchouli-Knowledge, commemoration of the Great Yuno War costs almost as much as the war itself, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and among slaves 'bastard' is an honorific rather than an insult. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patchouli-Knowledge's national animal is the rtbrtbrtb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Patchouli-Knowledge is ranked 152,939th in the world and 79th in Yuno for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4.58 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
