The Republic of Yaos

Regional Influence: Hermit

Location: Siam


The Republic of Yaos is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its compassionate, cynical population of 10.924 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Commerce and Defence are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 38%, but much higher for the wealthy. A large private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Arms Manufacturing.

Education and welfare spending are on the rise, the mob and the police have had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Yaos's cities recently due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, the government has legalised small-scale capitalism, and foreigners are treated with great suspicion. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Yaos's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the dollar.

Yaos is ranked 1st in Siam and 19,509th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
