The Rogue Nation of Yolcast is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 142 million Yolcastians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 61.8%.

The strong Yolcastian economy, worth 9.78 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 68,871 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, the nation has always been at war with Moltovea, Yolcast has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 15,912th in the world and 12th in Northern Redlands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,887.89 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
