The Republic of Yiyah is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Uriah Biggles with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 13.952 billion Yiyahians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riah Town. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The large but sluggish Yiyahian economy, worth 625 trillion Yiyahs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 44,799 Yiyahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Only adults may purchase violent video games, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, and Yiyah is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yiyah's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Yiyah is ranked 121,611th in the world and 140th in Forest for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.04 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
