Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Peoples' Game of Yaopow is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chairman Yao with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.727 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaopowian economy, worth 573 trillion Pows a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 121,316 Pows, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 575,608 per year while the poor average 15,089, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, the children of Yaopow are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, and YaoCows are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way'. 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 39,419th in the world and 1,031st in Balder for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.86 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
