The Republic of Yertania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Populist Leader with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.522 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.
The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bratislava Forest. The average income tax rate is 17.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Yertanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,014 trillion silver coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,932 silver coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
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 a capable police force. Yertania's national animal is the mythic grappelzen, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
