The Confederate States of Yannia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Yann Hendric III with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 21.041 billion love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yannsborg. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime is totally unknown. Yannia's national animal is the Green Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Stvr.

Yannia is ranked 2nd in The Heartland and 141st in the world for Best Weather, with 1,180 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
