Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Nudist States of Yannia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Yann Herman VI with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.175 billion Yannians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yannsborg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yannian economy, worth a remarkable 8,464 trillion Stvrs 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 300,429 Stvrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and Y-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime is totally unknown. Yannia's national animal is the Green Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Drakonism.

Yannia is ranked 158th in the world and 1st in Nudist Dreamland for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
