The Rebuplic of Yamantau

Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Rebuplic of Yamantau is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ygor Szubrov with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.39 billion Yamanta are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiroyev. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Yamanta economy, worth 622 trillion Tarkoes 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 97,486 Tarkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, Ygor Szubrov often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, war criminals are given full state funerals, and both criminals and civilians are DOA. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yamantau's national animal is the Kodiak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox Messianism.
