The Matriarchy of Yaambra is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its lack of airports, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 592 million Yaambrans 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 Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yalaraa. The average income tax rate is 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Yaambran economy, worth 21.7 trillion yaras a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 36,702 yaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, they say that Yaambrans made a dessert and called it peace, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, and businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaambra's national animal is the nightingale, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yaambra is ranked 138,648th in the world and 236th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 101.22 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
