Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Yaos is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 17.462 billion Yaosians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Yaosian economy, worth 938 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,733 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Education and welfare spending are on the rise, the mob and the police have had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Yaos's cities recently due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, the government has legalised small-scale capitalism, and foreigners are treated with great suspicion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaos's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yaos is ranked 77,079th in the world and 1st in Siam for Most Devout, with 20.77 Prayers Per Hour.
