The Federation of Yafetistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Yafet with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.407 billion Yafetistanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 Addis Dingai. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yafetistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,078 trillion credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 145,551 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, chess defeat has made Yafet the laughingstock of dictators and grandmasters alike, the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yafetistan's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Yafetistan is ranked 112,120th in the world and 7th in United Fascist Workers Association for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 9.39 on the Hayek Index.
