OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Yertania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Populist Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 15.923 billion Yertanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Religion & Spirituality, although Law & Order and Education are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minsk Forest. The average income tax rate is 63%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, farmers can be spotted driving gold-plated tractors, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yertania's national animal is the big social security check, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the silver coin.

Yertania is ranked 1st in Socialist Republic and 4,504th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 255 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
