Yellow Star Republic

Population14.165 billion

LeaderDirector General Gerta Hildgursdottir


The United Socialist States of Yellow Star Republic is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Director General Gerta Hildgursdottir with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.165 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 60.5%.

The Yellosian economy, worth 623 trillion Skels a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,020 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 111,542nd in the world and 10th in Teremara for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 234.06 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
