The Recycled Empire of Yes Humans Are Recyclable is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Recycled with an even hand, and notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets.

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 127,853 Recyclable Water Bottles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yes Humans Are Recyclable's national animal is the Recycled Animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Recycled theology.
