The Republic of Yemen is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.159 billion Yemenians 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 medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, International Aid, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.0%.

The strong Yemenian economy, worth 734 trillion riyals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 42,813 riyals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 291,079 per year while the poor average 2,300, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem. Yemen's national animal is the sandworm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yemen is ranked 150,974th in the world and 27th in Middle East for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 982.52 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
