The Republic of Yiyah is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.816 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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 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 82%, 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.
Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. Crime is totally unknown. Yiyah's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Yiyah.
