The United Socialist States of Yellow Star Republic is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Director General Gerta Hildgursdottir with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 18.52 billion Yellosians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkjelstad. The average income tax rate is 57.1%.

The Yellosian economy, worth 800 trillion Skels a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,205 Skels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military has declared war on all religious influence, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, children often kick Caribous for amusement, and curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yellow Star Republic's national animal is the Caribou, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yellow Star Republic is ranked 63,184th in the world and 11th in Teremara for Lowest Crime Rates, with 67.59 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
