Southern Yugoslavia

Population23.914 billion

LeaderPresident Yuliya Surkova


The Federative Republic of Southern Yugoslavia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Yuliya Surkova with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 23.914 billion Volkians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — is primarily concerned with Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volkgoroda. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Volkian economy, worth a remarkable 3,300 trillion koronas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,034 koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Volkian as 'your finger, you fool'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Yugoslavia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mahitou.

Southern Yugoslavia is ranked 968th in the world and 28th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 155.02 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
