OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Yiyah is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.352 billion Yiyahians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 1,920th in Lazarus and 70,785th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.201 Stalins.
