Yang Gang Illinois

Population268 million

AnimalHoney Badger

The Republic of Yang Gang Illinois is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Honey Badger population. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 268 million Yang Gang Illinoisians 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 10.0%.

The Yang Gang Illinoisian economy, worth 14.0 trillion UBIS a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 52,388 UBIS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is well under control. Yang Gang Illinois's national animal is the Honey Badger, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Yang Gang Illinois is ranked 67,739th in the world and 206th in Armies of Sweets for Highest Drug Use, scoring 83.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
