The Confederate States of Yannia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Yann Hendric III with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, intelligent population of 22.003 billion Yannians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal 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.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and torture is illegal. Crime is totally unknown. Yannia's national animal is the Green Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Drakonism, and its currency is the Stvr.

Yannia is ranked 3rd in The Heartland and 126th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 601 Dawkins.
