The Post-Apocalyptic Empire of Yermaney is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Tandi with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 24.758 billion Yermans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arroyo. The average income tax rate is 14.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Yerman economy, worth a remarkable 2,424 trillion bottle caps a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,946 bottle caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby President Tandi Pics" has made President Tandi's mom a celebrity, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, and most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yermaney's national animal is the brahmin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is post-theism.

Yermaney is ranked 55,926th in the world and 8th in Deutschland for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66.86 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
