The Generous Roots of Yuletide Yggdrasil is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Tannenbaum Kvist with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.822 billion Forest-dwellers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashen Tree House. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sylvan economy, worth a remarkable 1,330 trillion passports a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 275,880 passports, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, t-shirts displaying a photo of Tannenbaum Kvist performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. Crime is totally unknown. Yuletide Yggdrasil's national animal is the Yule Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christmas Time.

Yuletide Yggdrasil is ranked 482nd in the world and 1st in Christmas for Most Pacifist, with 240.94 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
