The Greater Conglomerate of Yugobatania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Mark O with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.627 billion Yugobatanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vielo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Yugobatanian economy, worth 459 trillion E-Brins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 174,727 E-Brins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 617,391 per year while the poor average 35,737, a ratio of 17.3 to 1.

Mark O is famed for giving great back rubs, graffiti graces every city's streets, former first wives now find themselves mothers to twenty children, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yugobatania's national animal is the Tsyemny Sperm Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Moneyism.

Yugobatania is ranked 209,343rd in the world and 12,059th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.68 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
