The Red Tape Singularity of Yegla Islands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dmitri Rasputin with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.167 billion Yeglans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chernograd. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yeglan economy, worth a remarkable 3,046 trillion Yegels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 250,354 Yegels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People are raising their middle finger to non-digital currencies, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Yeglan Navy, and lion-reed-vulture-hand-reed-mouth is how Dmitri Rasputin is spelt now. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yegla Islands's national animal is the Vampire Squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Yegla Islands is ranked 31,236th in the world and 29th in Cape of Good Hope for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 283,876 Standard Monetary Units.
