The Constitutional Monarchy of Yatzatz is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Zhakak I with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.699 billion Yatzatzians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yatzand. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yatzatzian economy, worth 787 trillion Yatzes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,598 Yatzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and King Zhakak I's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yatzatz's national animal is the Yatzatzian green hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yatzatz is ranked 97,020th in the world and 6,067th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.84 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
