The Republic of Patchouli-Knowledge is a massive, safe nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, avant-garde cinema, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-working, humorless, devout population of 1.48 billion Patchouli-Knowledgeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.0%.

The powerhouse Patchouli-Knowledgean economy, worth 121 trillion rtbrtbrtbs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 82,187 rtbrtbrtbs, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Patchouli-Knowledge City to enjoy their national art, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, and frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patchouli-Knowledge's national animal is the rtbrtbrtb, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Patchouli-Knowledge is ranked 124,040th in the world and 2,452nd in Yuno for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 183.31 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
