The Peoples' Game of Yaopow is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chairman Yao with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.308 billion Yaopowians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of YaoTown. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology industries.

The populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, children of nonreligious parents are often barred from school festival events, and students in Yaopow's schools rarely attend their classes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Yaopow's national animal is the YaoCow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Pow.

Yaopow is ranked 526th in Balder and 13,597th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -1 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
