Yellow Star Republic

Population16.838 billion

LeaderDirector General Gerta Hildgursdottir


The United Socialist States of Yellow Star Republic is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Director General Gerta Hildgursdottir with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.838 billion Yellosians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkjelstad. The average income tax rate is 59.2%.

The Yellosian economy, worth 728 trillion Skels a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 43,273 Skels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yellow Star Republic's national animal is the Caribou, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yellow Star Republic is ranked 104,439th in the world and 11th in Teremara for Most Developed, scoring 55.19 on the Human Development Index.
