The Rogue Nation of Yolcast is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 873 million Yolcastians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Yolcastian economy, worth 89.5 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,478 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Purported secret military bases are dismissed by Leader to be highly-advanced toilet factories, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, the national water supply has entered detox, and nine out of ten citizens of Yolcast answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yolcast's national animal is the Piggy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yolcast is ranked 18,527th in the world and 41st in Redlandia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 263.68 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
