The Republic of Ynobia is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.671 billion Ynobians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eshialand City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ynobian economy, worth 271 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 101,591 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 362,799 per year while the poor average 20,441, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

Giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Leader is a silly poophead, the religious lobby has the power of veto over health initiatives, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and the government is spending millions on lawyers' fees trying to get Leader off a murder charge. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ynobia's national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ynobia is ranked 53,670th in the world and 971st in Artificial Solar System for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,140.05 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
