The Pink Holy of Yaak is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 726 million Yaakians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrasil. The average income tax rate is 69.0%.

The all-consuming Yaakian economy, worth 85.7 trillion Brains a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,009 Brains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Yggdrasil, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaak's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yaak is ranked 211,161st in the world and 22nd in Warzone Airspace for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 46.97 Whatever.
