Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Constitutional Monarchy of Yatzatz is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Zhakak I with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.618 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 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yatzatzian economy, worth 430 trillion Yatzes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,343 Yatzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Police protocol is to arrest anyone who looks a bit foreign, concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, and nobody is allowed to mention what religion terrorists follow. 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 39,835th in the world and 2,095th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,027.38 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
