Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Mercantile Republic of North Yemen- is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Étienne Bousquet with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.908 billion Genetians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while Environment receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varennes. The average income tax rate is 68.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Genet economy, worth a remarkable 1,703 trillion Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 156,161 Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and jaywalking is punishable by public flogging. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Yemen-'s national animal is the Putois Polecat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

North Yemen- is ranked 169,983rd in the world and 3rd in Arab League for Longest Average Lifespans, with 40.77 Years.
