The Free Land of Yum Kaax is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 396 million Yum Kaaxians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Castillo. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Yum Kaaxian economy, worth 30.0 trillion Golden Eggs 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 large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Retail, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. 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 75,776 Golden Eggs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and arrow loops, citizens have voted the song "Leader Smells Like A Goose" as their new national anthem, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Yum Kaax's national animal is the Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yum Kaax is ranked 857th in the world and 5th in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 11,439.54 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
