The Republic of Yitussia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 491 million Yitussians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Yitussian economy, worth 16.1 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 32,850 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Third world countries are rich in "I Love Yitussia City" t-shirts, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, a government program is underway to revitalize Yitussia's beaches, and troops are either deafened by gunfire or a hysterical voice screaming the Party manifesto. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yitussia's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
