The 21st century Republic of Yertania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by committee cycle yearly with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.296 billion Yertanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Law & Order, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bratislava Forest. The average income tax rate is 18.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Yertanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,371 trillion silver credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,894 silver credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Yertania's national animal is the mythic grappelzen, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
