Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Yiyah is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.506 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 96.5%.

The sizeable but stagnant Yiyahian economy, worth 59.8 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 7,031 Yiyahs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, anti-government web sites are springing up, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 302nd in The North Pacific and 10,314th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 185.014 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
