The 🐶 Canine Utopia of Yodle is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Wuff with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.687 billion Yodleans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yodle City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yodlean economy, worth a remarkable 2,518 trillion Yodles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 260,031 Yodles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bars are packed at all hours, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, and the parliament building has installed a revolving door. Crime is totally unknown. Yodle's national animal is the doge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yodlism.

Yodle is ranked 204,796th in the world and 116th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.45 Crimes Per Hour.
