The Queendom of Yabkhu

Regional Influence: Sprat

Location: The North Pacific



Population629 million



The Queendom of Yabkhu is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 629 million Yakbhuans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Areumdami. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yabkhuan economy, worth 68.4 trillion Barrules a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,666 Barrules, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, edutainment video games are taking Yabkhu's students to the next level, the skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Yabkhuan Desert, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Yabkhu. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yabkhu's national animal is the yak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yabkhu is ranked 65,428th in the world and 2,492nd in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 114.8257251226 Days.
