Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Yiyah is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.036 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, 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 97.2%.

The large but sluggish Yiyahian economy, worth 446 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 40,436 Yiyahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Torture is illegal, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. 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 39,229th in the world and 108th in Forest for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 121.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
