The Generous Roots of Yuletide Yggdrasil is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Tannenbaum Kvist with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.701 billion Forest-dwellers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashen Tree House. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sylvan economy, worth a remarkable 2,655 trillion passports a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 344,832 passports, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, and a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yuletide Yggdrasil's national animal is the Yule Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christmas Time.

Yuletide Yggdrasil is ranked 804th in the world and 3rd in Christmas for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 26,146.87 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
