The Community of Yellownesia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 535 million Yellownesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yellow City. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Yellownesian economy, worth 17.6 trillion United Federation dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 32,822 United Federation dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yellownesia's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Yellownesia is ranked 216,133rd in the world and 4th in Pacific Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.38 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
