OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Yertania is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Populist Leader with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 2.229 billion, 2.228 billion of whom are zombies, 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 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 Minsk Forest. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Populist Leader's bedroom, and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. 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 2nd in Byelorussian Ssr and 96,673rd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Yertania is currently considering its options.
