The Generous Roots of Yuletide Yggdrasil is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tannenbaum Kvist with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.932 billion Forest-dwellers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashen Tree House. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sylvan economy, worth a remarkable 2,766 trillion passports a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 348,811 passports, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yuletide Yggdrasil's national animal is the Yule Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christmas Time.

Yuletide Yggdrasil is ranked 254,605th in the world and 131st in Christmas for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
