Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Lost Island of Shining Ys is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Queen Dahut with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.569 billion Shining Ysians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ys. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The large but inefficient Shining Ysian economy, worth 387 trillion Lucky Silver Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,796 Lucky Silver Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shining Ys's national animal is the impossible bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shining Ys is ranked 1,866th in the world and 77th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
