The Technocracy of Yuktova is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Father with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.662 billion Yuktovans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Institute. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Yuktovan economy, worth 645 trillion Resource Based Credits 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 an impressive 114,050 Resource Based Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Yuktovan bee, and fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government. Crime is totally unknown. Yuktova's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nu Atheism.
