The Most Serene Republic of Yalgora is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 556 million Yalgorans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkadianopoulis. The average income tax rate is 71.5%.

The very strong Yalgoran economy, worth 48.9 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,860 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments. 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.

Yalgora is ranked 90,689th in the world and 4,634th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 64.38 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
