The Most Serene Republic of Yentria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dawn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.989 billion Yentrianites 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72%, and even 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.
Meat-eating is frowned upon, Yentria's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. Crime is totally unknown. Yentria's national animal is the White Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Leaf.
