The Songhai Empire of Yarosluv is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mansa Ayub Askiya I with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 12.81 billion Songhai 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aito. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Songhai economy, worth a remarkable 3,281 trillion Nkan goolu ₦s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 256,159 Nkan goolu ₦s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 821,265 per year while the poor average 60,606, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", the youth vote is only counted when kindergarten teachers ask who drew the best picture, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Yarosluv's national animal is the Black crowned crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Yarosluv is ranked 20,628th in the world and 35th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 5.72 Bank.
