Southern Yugoslavia

Population22.352 billion

LeaderPresident Yuliya Surkova


The Federative Republic of Southern Yugoslavia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Yuliya Surkova with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 22.352 billion Volkians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volkgoroda. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Volkian economy, worth a remarkable 2,957 trillion koronas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,311 koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nations that kill a Volkian can expect a strongly worded letter, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, it's never "just a game" with Volkian sports fans, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. 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 1,781st in the world and 46th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 26,854.62 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
