The Republic of Yoannes is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Natasha Alovska with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.981 billion Yoannesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Yoannesian economy, worth 396 trillion Youanneses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,644 Youanneses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat, rocket scientists spend more time designing slide shows than launching rockets, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and corrupt paupers spend taxpayer Youanneses on liquor and tobacco. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yoannes's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.
