The Puppet Mastering Mercenaries of Yaabofa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Andre Toulon with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.991 billion Yaabofans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Welfare, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puppetown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.4%.

The very strong Yaabofan economy, worth a remarkable 1,360 trillion destroyed puppets a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,759 destroyed puppets, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 378,700 per year while the poor average 14,198, a ratio of 26.7 to 1.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer destroyed puppets to support "struggling" industries, thrift shops are closing their doors, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Yaabofa" at foreigners. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaabofa's national animal is the spoiled child of war and its national religion is the eternal worship of cold hard cash.

Yaabofa is ranked 42,569th in the world and 1st in Radiant for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 137.78 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
