The Dominion of Ysiana is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Klausbulant with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, triple-decker prams, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.045 billion Ysianans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vernonburg. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ysianan economy, worth a remarkable 2,945 trillion kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 325,620 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, slaves who produce weapons are given free samples, and glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ysiana's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Loeidiem.

Ysiana is ranked 5,191st in the world and 250th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,558.39 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
