|Leader||the Executive Council|
The Workers' Republic of Yellowjacket is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Executive Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.397 billion Workers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Yellowjacket economy, worth 212 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 152,179 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, and parking's carefree without parking car fees. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Yellowjacket's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
