Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Yiyah is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.652 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yiyah City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The sizeable but stagnant Yiyahian economy, worth 71.5 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 7,412 Yiyahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, all guns must be registered, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Yiyah City for fear of causing a fuss. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 62nd in Forest and 94,306th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.177 Stalins.
