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 notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.151 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, outspoken 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 96.8%.

The large but stagnant Yiyahian economy, worth 196 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 19,326 Yiyahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, visions of giant pink Turtles are a common side effect after Yiyahians eat their meals, conspiracy theorists allege Yiyah City's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. 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 185,873rd in the world and 102nd in Forest for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 0.86 Missed References Per Hour.
