The Confederate Republic of Youtabonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Sawyer with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 19.292 billion Youtabonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cinigrad-Farbanti. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Youtabonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,740 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 193,886 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is said that a Youtabonian woman's work is never done, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Youtabonia's national animal is the Verusian Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Youtabonia is ranked 154,848th in the world and 92nd in Eurth for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -25.69 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
