The Syndicalist Nations of Yousta is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Sharp with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.741 billion Youstans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yousta City. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Youstan economy, worth 375 trillion Youstan 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. 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 136,930 Youstan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, every week is blindness awareness week, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue". Crime is totally unknown. Yousta's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
