Yalaw

Population127 million

The Empire of Yalaw is a very large, cultured nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, devout population of 127 million Yalawians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 37.8%.

The strong Yalawian economy, worth 9.14 trillion Preans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 71,943 Preans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, and only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yalaw's national animal is the Bright Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yalaw is ranked 33,385th in the world and 1,739th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 117.09 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
