The Yes of Pogba is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kylian Pogba with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.077 billion Pogbans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kylian. The average income tax rate is 44.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pogban economy, worth 117 trillion Euros 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 108,839 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

P-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, and neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogba's national animal is the Snow leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Serbian Orthodox.

Pogba is ranked 236,939th in the world and 1,338th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -9.73 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
