The Most Serene Republic of Yalgora is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Michelangelo Sirendra with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.219 billion Yalgorans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkadianopoulis. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Yalgoran economy, worth 250 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,031 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Yalgora, class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, and an epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yalgora's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secular.

Yalgora is ranked 198,241st in the world and 122nd in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -5.93 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
