The Republic of Yellops is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 574 million Yellopsians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Yellopsian economy, worth 31.2 trillion yellopsian dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,388 yellopsian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's never "just a game" with Yellopsian sports fans, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yellops's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yellops is ranked 38,913th in the world and 1,885th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,215.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
