The Dictatorship of YnohhpeA is a large, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 68 million YnohhpeAians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.7%.

The very strong YnohhpeAian economy, worth 3.54 trillion eas a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 52,046 eas, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. YnohhpeA's national animal is the hceeL.

YnohhpeA is ranked 58,014th in the world and 53rd in Refugia for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,714.86 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
