The Republic of North Yeetland is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.413 billion North Yeetlandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polaris. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving North Yeetlandian economy, worth 251 trillion Yeetlandian Francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,051 Yeetlandian Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, North Yeetlandians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents. Crime is totally unknown. North Yeetland's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Yeetland is ranked 153,359th in the world and 8,315th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -85.3 on the Hayek Index.
