The Workers' Republic of Yellowjacket is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Executive Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.364 billion Workers 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 medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yellowjacket economy, worth 204 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 150,241 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Yellowjacket's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yellowjacket is ranked 241,005th in the world and 982nd in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 21.69 Whatever.
