The Kingdom of Yahshabbat is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jacob Kraus Weber with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 978 million Shabbatists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shacovian. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient shabbat economy, worth 41.9 trillion Shaels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 42,792 Shaels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, red fabric is banned, and wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yahshabbat's national animal is the Óryx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yahshabbat is ranked 91,276th in the world and 3,101st in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,205.33 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
