The Republic of Yuplantis is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 505 million Yuplantisians 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Yuplantisian economy, worth 12.9 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 25,602 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yuplantis's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yuplantis is ranked 53,686th in the world and 4th in The Quentian States for Most Inclusive, scoring 107.82 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
