The Socialist States of Yousta is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Sylvia Thomas with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.798 billion Youstans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yousta City. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Youstan economy, worth 678 trillion Youstan Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 141,392 Youstan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, Youstan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and the Youstan Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime is totally unknown. Yousta's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Yousta is ranked 172,780th in the world and 101st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Armed, with 0.24 Weapons Per Person.
