The Queen's State of Yaqua is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 19.221 billion Yaquans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Yaquan economy, worth a remarkable 1,008 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 52,457 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Gambling is outlawed, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste and avoid even more costly cleanup costs, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaqua's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yaqua is ranked 57,339th in the world and 1st in Kyiv for Highest Poor Incomes, with 33,840.69 Standard Monetary Units.
