The Great Revolutionary Republic of Yazlandia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord President Yaz with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.178 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.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yaztown. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Yazlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,248 trillion Monies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,703 Monies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'Jackaldogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Yazlandia's national animal is the Jackal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
