The Grand Martial Empire of The Yeetusa is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chancellor Gordon Saafis with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.531 billion Yeetusans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Telmania. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 88.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Yeetusan economy, worth 374 trillion Yeetusan Credits 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. 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 244,848 Yeetusan Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, Chancellor Gordon Saafis's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, an underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, and loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Yeetusa's national animal is the Yeetusa Crocodile, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Surrealism.

The Yeetusa is ranked 132,058th in the world and 280th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 495.57 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
