Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Socialist Pokemon Republic of North Yemen- is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Pikachu with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.736 billion Pokémon 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Indigo Plateau. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pokémon economy, worth a remarkable 1,078 trillion Oran Berries a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 123,422 Oran Berries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean, nation-building is the new national pastime, the nation's people have woken up to find themselves colonial masters of Brasilistan, and "To Hell or to Marshland" is a common settler cry directed at native Brasilistanis. 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 Pikachu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Mewism.

North Yemen- is ranked 5th in Alosteq Diin Nastja and 115,715th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -10 on the Hayek Index.
