The Socialist States of Yousta is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Sylvia Thomas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.836 billion Youstans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yousta City. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Youstan economy, worth a remarkable 1,011 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 147,905 Youstan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School history books often refer to President Sylvia Thomas as "that imperialist pig dog", visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is totally unknown. Yousta's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Yousta is ranked 25,920th in the world and 77th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Income Equality, scoring 74.17 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
