Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Yiyah is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.907 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yiyah City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The sizeable but stagnant Yiyahian economy, worth 57.1 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 7,219 Yiyahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Uriah Biggles's bedroom, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 3,791st in Osiris and 135,986th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -29 Whatever.
