The Second Federal Community of The Ysion is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Community Council League with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 5.75 billion Ysion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cassi City. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ysionian economy, worth 511 trillion Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 88,900 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, diplomatic cables about The Community Council League have suddenly been very flattering, young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ysion's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

The Ysion is ranked 252,301st in the world and 84th in Ridgefield for Most Cultured, scoring 41 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
