Ya Mon

The Free Land of Ya Mon is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 263 million Ya Mons enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The very strong Ya Monian economy, worth 18.3 trillion Blunts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 69,611 Blunts, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Public enemies often walk home with spotless garments and crime records, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Ya Mon flights to avoid the pay lavatories, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ya Mon's national animal is the Iguana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ya Mon is ranked 135,126th in the world and 66th in Founderless for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 355.32 Tourists Per Hour.
