The Drink Server and Mob Boss of Yansu is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, triple-decker prams, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.861 billion Yansuans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astera. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Yansuan economy, worth 284 trillion Terosans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 153,102 Terosans, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 502,087 per year while the poor average 35,038, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and Yansu's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown. Yansu's national animal is the Anjanath, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yansu is ranked 75,423rd in the world and 2,886th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 34.17 Effective Tax Rate.
