The Republic of Appa Yip Yip
“Strength Through Freedom”
Location: The City of Ba Sing Se
Regional Influence: Squire
The Republic of Appa Yip Yip is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 350 million Appa Yip Yipians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.2%.
The strong Appa Yip Yipian economy, worth 12.3 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 35,095 bitcoins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 226,193 per year while the poor average 2,200, a ratio of 102 to 1.
Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Appa Yip Yip's national animal is the bison.
