The Generous Roots of Yuletide Yggdrasil is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tannenbaum Kvist with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.772 billion Forest-dwellers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashen Tree House. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sylvan economy, worth a remarkable 1,305 trillion passports a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 273,660 passports, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, autocrats are persona non grata, refugees from other nations are flocking to Yuletide Yggdrasil's border, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime is totally unknown. Yuletide Yggdrasil's national animal is the Yule Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christmas Time.

Yuletide Yggdrasil is ranked 526th in the world and 1st in Christmas for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,432.11 Tourists Per Hour.
