The 🌹 Socialist Utopia of Yodle is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Wuff with a fair hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.914 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burlington. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yodlean economy, worth a remarkable 1,989 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 251,345 Yodles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The children of Yodle are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Yodles of property damage, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, and no one is worried about government policies any more. Crime is totally unknown. Yodle's national animal is the snow owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Yodlism.

Yodle is ranked 801st in the world and 1st in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Cultured, scoring 335 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
