The Queen's State of Yee of Old is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.138 billion Yee of Oldians 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, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.2%.

The Yee of Oldian economy, worth 954 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 52,605 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, foreigners are treated with great suspicion, and major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yee of Old's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yee of Old is ranked 134,073rd in the world and 8th in Bonn for Most Pro-Market, scoring -50 on the Rand Index.
