The Republic of Youssath is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 353 million Youssathians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Youssathian economy, worth 16.0 trillion Youssath Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 45,289 Youssath Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, and museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Youssath's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Youssath is ranked 84,881st in the world and 3,113th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 62.97229997548 Days.
