The Confederate States of Yannia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Yann Hendric III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.757 billion Yannians 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.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yannsborg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yannian economy, worth a remarkable 6,806 trillion Stvrs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 299,092 Stvrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime is totally unknown. Yannia's national animal is the Green Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Drakonism.

Yannia is ranked 5th in The Heartland and 1,243rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 381 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
