The Summer Christmas of Yahlia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kjeila Pentrăscu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.577 billion Yahlians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belgrade. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yahlian economy, worth a remarkable 1,212 trillion euros 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 217,334 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, all the playground's a stage for Yahlian schoolchildren, carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, and edutainment video games are taking Yahlia's students to the next level. Crime is totally unknown. Yahlia's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is secularism.

Yahlia is ranked 11,087th in the world and 189th in Europe for Most Secular, with 85.81 Atheism Rate.
