The Confederate States of Yannia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Yann Hendric III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.616 billion Yannians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be 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.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and priests are being drafted by the church load. 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 130th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 17 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
