The Workers' Republic of Yellowjacket is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the Executive Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.517 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 Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yellowjacket economy, worth 239 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, broadly 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 157,735 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, there is a dearth of space for new houses, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime, especially youth-related, is a 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.

Yellowjacket is ranked 238,482nd in the world and 1,111th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -18.17 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
