The Republic of Yokeyis is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, democratic population of 182 million Yokeyisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Yokeyisian economy, worth 8.34 trillion Real AsiŠticoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. 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 45,821 Real AsiŠticoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and the nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yokeyis's national animal is the Pav„o, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yokeyis is ranked 159,927th in the world and 381st in The Leftist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.42 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
