OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Queen's State of Yaos is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The compassionate, cynical population of 11.519 billion Yaosians 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 -- is mainly concerned with 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the betale.

Yaos is ranked 1st in Siam and 80,126th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 0 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
