The New Vegas Empire of Yes Man is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Benny with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.738 billion Nevadans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Tops Casino. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.8%.

The powerhouse Yes Manian economy, worth 945 trillion bottle caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 68,807 bottle caps, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in The Tops Casino, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yes Man's national animal is the radscorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

Yes Man is ranked 96,184th in the world and 22nd in The Trunk of a Pontiac Tempest for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 31.75 Effective Tax Rate.
