The Peoples' Game of Yaopow is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Yao with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.546 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.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Social Policy and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of YaoTown. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Yaopowian economy, worth 532 trillion Pows a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 117,072 Pows, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 543,899 per year while the poor average 15,143, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

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 all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Yaopow's national animal is the YaoCow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yaopow is ranked 354th in Balder and 7,698th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
