Population1.192 billion



The Republic of Yumaka is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.192 billion Yumakans 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seoul. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Yumakan economy, worth 102 trillion won a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,761 won, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, the Yumaka Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews. Crime is totally unknown. Yumaka's national animal is the goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yumaka is ranked 156,053rd in the world and 5,710th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14.9 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
