The Republic of Yoyofireblade is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Montecalvo with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 13.748 billion Bladites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Limerick City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bladian economy, worth a remarkable 2,104 trillion hiris a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,058 hiris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yoyofireblade's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Montecavism.

Yoyofireblade is ranked 149,443rd in the world and 5,254th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -674.2 on the Hayek Index.
