The Political Machinations of Yraipotnoj is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Peter Sancho with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.052 billion Yraipotnojis are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falcon City. The average income tax rate is 21.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yraipotnoji economy, worth 874 trillion rubes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 123,959 rubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astronauts take one small step for Yraipotnoj and one giant step backward from confrontation, citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, military funding has been stripped back, and oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law. Yraipotnoj's national animal is the jackal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is violent violetism.

Yraipotnoj is ranked 112,869th in the world and 5,302nd in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 37.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
