The Great Revolutionary Republic of Yazlandia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord President Yaz with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.041 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, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yaztown. The average income tax rate is 3%, 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.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, Yaztown is a police state during international summits, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. 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 4th in Democratic Socialist Assembly and 407th in the world for Best Weather, with 689 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
