Yojom

Population384 million

AnimalRedbone Coonhound

The United Socialist States of Yojom is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 384 million Yojomians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Yojomian economy, worth 12.3 trillion ES 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 Gambling, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. 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 32,147 ES , and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Yojomian democracy, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yojom's national animal is the Redbone Coonhound.

Yojom is ranked 114,974th in the world and 198th in Spiritus for Most Politically Free, scoring 59.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
