OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Yiyah is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.324 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yiyah City. The average income tax rate is 91%, 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.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. 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.

Yiyah is ranked 126th in Lazarus and 4,132nd in the world for Best Weather, with 199 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
