OverviewFactbookPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Kingdom of Yamantau is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Tzar Ygor Szubrov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ritual sacrifices, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.022 billion Yamanta are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized 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 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Yamanta economy, worth 389 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 96,813 Tarkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, water fights now end with thousands dead, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. 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.

Yamantau is ranked 204,363rd in the world and 7,918th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.55 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
