Yoshi Valley

Population2.215 billion

CapitalNew Dragon City


The Kingdom of Yoshi Valley is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.215 billion Valyrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dragon City. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yoshi Valleyian economy, worth 281 trillion Komodoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 126,864 Komodoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, government programs are less "written" and more "plagiarised", and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime is totally unknown. Yoshi Valley's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yoshi Valley is ranked 101,092nd in the world and 4,370th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 68 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
