Yellowstone Valley

Population18.929 billion

CapitalBear Creek
LeaderFaith Spotted Eagle


The Native Peoples of Yellowstone Valley is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Faith Spotted Eagle with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 18.929 billion Yellowstone Valleyians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bear Creek. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Yellowstone Valleyian economy, worth 931 trillion Obsidians a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 49,210 Obsidians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yellowstone Valley's national animal is the coyote, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yellowstone Valley is ranked 169,393rd in the world and 2nd in Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem for Fattest Citizens, with 8.23 Obesity Rate.
