The Red Tape Singularity of Yegla Islands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dmitri Rasputin with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.628 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 3,167 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 250,823 Yegels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dmitri Rasputin's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, a nickname of "Doctor Death" probably indicates a decorated war hero, soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, and Dmitri Rasputin is strangely popular with male politicians' wives. 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 274,271st in the world and 6,583rd in Balder for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -20.05 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
