The Great Revolutionary Republic of Yazlandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord President Yaz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.856 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, outspoken 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 48.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Yazlandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,281 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 108,126 Monies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is a 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.
