The Republic of Ysarga is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Angela with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.916 billion Ysargans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yunaki. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ysargan economy, worth a remarkable 1,343 trillion Lumens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 273,312 Lumens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Bicycle parking sheds have sprouted like mushrooms near rail stations after cars were banned, conspiracy theorists allege Yunaki's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, and half of Ysarga just lost MyFace after space debris collided with a major communications satellite. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ysarga's national animal is the Angel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Necromancy.

Ysarga is ranked 3,190th in the world and 237th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 8,598.89 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
