OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Great Revolutionary Republic of Yazlandia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord President Yaz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.374 billion Yazlanders love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, socially-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yaztown. The average income tax rate is 5%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, all tariffs have been abolished, the wreckages of bombed planes that litter Yazlandia are highly popular tourist destinations, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Yazlandia's national animal is the Jackal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Money.

Yazlandia is ranked 264th in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 113,150th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with -102 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
