The Most Serene Republic of Yalgora is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Michelangelo Sirendra with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.777 billion Yalgorans 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 enormous 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 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Yalgoran economy, worth 194 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,690 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, and commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all. 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 214,517th in the world and 211th in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 10,749.64 Standard Monetary Units.
