The Holy Theocracy of Yanab is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Yan Yashif with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.323 billion Yanabis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kotta. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Yanabi economy, worth 42.9 trillion Dahaabs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,924 Dahaabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The teaching of evolution has been banned, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, and government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yanab's national animal is the Verreaux's eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anglican Church of Yanab.

Yanab is ranked 238,970th in the world and 21st in Altay for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19.26 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
