The Armed Democracy of Yolodia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and national health service. The hard-working population of 3.778 billion Yolodians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yoloville. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Yolodian economy, worth 359 trillion Yolotons a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,118 Yolotons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, the local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Yolodian Navy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yolodia's national animal is the Giant Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yolodia is ranked 177,509th in the world and 7,263rd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
