Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Yiyah is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.845 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, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yiyah City. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The large but stagnant Yiyahian economy, worth 214 trillion Yiyahs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 19,796 Yiyahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the endangered saltwater humpback Turtle is only seen in captivity programs, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, and extreme political groups are outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yiyah's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Yiyah is ranked 113,377th in the world and 160th in Forest for Highest Poor Incomes, with 19,457.45 Standard Monetary Units.
