Yellow Star Republic

Population15.248 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 remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 15.248 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 671 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 105,635th in the world and 12th in Teremara for Most Pro-Market, scoring 38.29 on the Rand Index.
