The Woulda Been United States of Yarosluv is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Huey P Long with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 13.389 billion Americans 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salt Lake City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.0%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 3,440 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 256,962 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 807,079 per year while the poor average 62,642, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

The youth vote is only counted when kindergarten teachers ask who drew the best picture, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, taking a walk on the wild side is punishable by death, and to 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Yarosluv's national animal is the Axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Baptism.

Yarosluv is ranked 206,221st in the world and 53rd in The Graveyard for Most Avoided, scoring 0.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
