The Kingdom of Knitehorn is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Shark B with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, enslaved workforce, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.017 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 41.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Knitehornian economy, worth 117 trillion Bitcoins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,186 Bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, moonshine has made a resurgence, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Knitehorn's national animal is the Requiem Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Knitehorn is ranked 9,315th in the world and 495th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 94.62 Atheism Rate.
