Yoylum

Population163 million

The Kingdom of Yoylum is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 163 million Yoylians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 17.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Yoylian economy, worth 10.0 trillion Win Tokens a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 61,521 Win Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants, rock and roll involves rolling literal rocks in prison, Yoylum's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and citizens are abandoning their homes en masse in a widespread panic over asbestos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Yoylum's national animal is the Oscar Duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yoylum is ranked 141,807th in the world and 374th in NationStates for Highest Drug Use, scoring 20.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
