Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Yiyah is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.316 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yiyah City. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The sizeable but stagnant Yiyahian economy, worth 58.8 trillion Yiyahs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 7,070 Yiyahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, and the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country. 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 150th in The North Pacific and 4,820th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 19 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
