The Republic of Yara of Mestovakia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Antón Castillo with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The humorless population of 20.188 billion Yarans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esperanza. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yaran economy, worth a remarkable 5,007 trillion Yaran Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 248,061 Yaran Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mestovakia's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Mestovakia is ranked 271,219th in the world and 9,578th in the Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 4.69 Obesity Rate.
