OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Great Revolutionary Republic of Yazlandia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord President Yaz with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.749 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 14%, 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 number of students attending university has reached a record high, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, the government funds large training centres to turn Jackals into functioning members of society, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 9th in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 202nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 195 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
