The Proletarian Dictatorship of Yankeedomland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lady Liberty with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.098 billion Yankees have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Columbia. The average income tax rate is 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Yankeedomlandian economy, worth 193 trillion Workers' 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 black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 62,507 Workers' Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, the nation solves other countries' human rights problems with a generous dose of violence, the Columbia Film Festival recently voted 'Yankee Getting Hit By Football' as best film, and the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yankeedomland's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yankeedomland is ranked 19,798th in the world and 6th in Alnobia for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 55.01 Whatever.
