The Rebuplic of Yamantau is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ygor Szubrov with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.089 billion Yamanta are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiroyev. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Yamanta economy, worth 597 trillion Tarkoes 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 98,060 Tarkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, Ygor Szubrov often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, war criminals are given full state funerals, and both criminals and civilians are DOA. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yamantau's national animal is the Kodiak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Messianism.

Yamantau is ranked 19,828th in the world and 973rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,329.52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
