The Combined Unions of Yottabota is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Xavier Leke with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.657 billion Yottabotans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kropotkin. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Yottabotan economy, worth a remarkable 2,370 trillion Dollars 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 187,275 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, and Bigtopian relations have become a minefield. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yottabota's national animal is the Cardinal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yottabota is ranked 243,726th in the world and 136th in Confederacy of Allied States for Best Weather, with -282 Meters Of Sunlight.
