The People's Republic of Yyvont is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 476 million Yyvontites 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Yyvontian economy, worth 9.70 trillion lysts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 20,372 lysts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yyvont's national animal is the cribo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
