The Democratic States of Ytvigshill is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.027 billion Ytvigshillians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Ytvigshillian economy, worth 89.3 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,078 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ytvigshill's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
