Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Principality of Yakutat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.798 billion Yakutatians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.0%.

The very strong Yakutatian economy, worth 791 trillion nuggets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Gambling, Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,836 nuggets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 205,813 per year while the poor average 13,843, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

The government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs, Harry Potter books are banned, citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, and corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products. Crime is a problem. Yakutat's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yakutat is ranked 28,271st in the world and 1st in Alaska for Most Authoritarian, with 0.91 Stalins.
