Tammy Yui

Population6.968 billion

CapitalBot City


The Queendom of Tammy Yui is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tammy with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.968 billion Tammy Yuians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Spirituality, although Welfare, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bot City. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Tammy Yuian economy, worth 86.5 trillion Tammies 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, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 12,416 Tammies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public nudity is compulsory, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Bot City, Tammy has just been declared ruler of Tammy Yui in an international press conference, and open-heart surgery is taught in seminaries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tammy Yui's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tammyism.

Tammy Yui is ranked 111,750th in the world and 187th in Spiritus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 824.83 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
