The Republic of Yiyah is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.079 billion Yiyahians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Welfare and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yiyah City. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Birth rates have hit an all-time low, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Yiyah City Times is sold out, loans are available for students from poor families, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime is totally unknown. Yiyah's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the Yiyah.
