The Free Land of Yanadale is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.257 billion Yanadaleans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jadenheim. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.

The powerhouse Yanadalean economy, worth 153 trillion Swagbucks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 121,987 Swagbucks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 584,319 per year while the poor average 14,902, a ratio of 39.2 to 1.

One year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Leader's office, nihilistic thrill-seekers claim that suicide by roller coaster is the ultimate life experience, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Yanadale's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yanadale is ranked 2,140th in the world and 99th in Lazarus for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 22,502.62 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
