The Great Revolutionary Republic of Yazlandia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lord President Yaz with a fair hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 9.217 billion 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. Income tax is unheard of. 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.
Only adults may purchase violent video games, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, the nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Yazlandia to be bombproof. 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.
