Yara del sur

Population956 million

CurrencyPeso de Yara

The Federal Republic of Yara del sur is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 956 million Yaristas are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yara del surian economy, worth 72.1 trillion Peso de Yaras a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,425 Peso de Yaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Yara del sur in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yara del sur's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yara del sur is ranked 23,347th in the world and 1,138th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,028.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
