OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Socialist Republic of Yertania is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Populist Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 15.515 billion Yertanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Religion & Spirituality, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tatra Forest. The average income tax rate is 36%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Skateparks can be found in every city, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the silver coin.

Yertania is ranked 2,963rd in the Rejected Realms and 111,145th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with -26 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
