The Armed Republic of Knowwear in Youtopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Darkwing Duck with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.059 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, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, 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 7,526 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 357,408 deutsche marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,420,101 per year while the poor average 19,441, a ratio of 124 to 1.

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, citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, and bleach is the nation's most common pesticide. 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 37th in the world and 3rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 6,186.47 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
