The 21st century Republic of Yertania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by committee cycle yearly with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, national health service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.401 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bratislava Forest. The average income tax rate is 18.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yertanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,528 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 123,940 silver credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. 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.

Yertania is ranked 130,827th in the world and 9th in Yertania City for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 17.95 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
