OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Yertania is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Populist Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 16.053 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 Bratislava 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.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. 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 mythic grappelzen, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the silver coin.

Yertania is ranked 3rd in Autumn festival and 22,919th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 3 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
