The Kingdom of Knitehorn is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Shark B with an iron fist, and notable for its lack of airports, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.229 billion Knitehornians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kini. The average income tax rate is 61.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Knitehornian economy, worth 330 trillion Bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,258 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, dining out often involves Requiem Sharks on the plate no matter what you order, nobody expected the fruit inquisition, and babies are a small but significant export. Crime is moderate. Knitehorn's national animal is the Requiem Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Family.

Knitehorn is ranked 62,521st in the world and 2,795th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 618.53 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
