The Serene Deliberations of Yraipotnoj is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Malandros Gumbhi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.207 billion Yraipotnojis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Administration, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Homesville. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yraipotnoji economy, worth a remarkable 1,043 trillion Loaves of Hovis a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 113,363 Loaves of Hovis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Malandros Gumbhi's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', bike rage is all the rage, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Yraipotnoj's national animal is the Capybara, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Deism.

Yraipotnoj is ranked 145,714th in the world and 6,626th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 30.78 on the Rand Index.
