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 remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.693 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, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 96.9%.

The large but stagnant Yiyahian economy, worth 209 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 19,620 Yiyahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. 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 5,421st in the world and 39th in Forest for Largest Governments, scoring 38.94 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
