The Greater Conglomerate of Yugobatania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Mark O with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.252 billion Yugobatanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vielo. The average income tax rate is 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yugobatanian economy, worth 191 trillion E-Brins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,625 E-Brins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government has the power to seize property at will, racial supremacists indulge their wildest fantasies in cinemas and theatres across the nation, the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yugobatania's national animal is the Great Longbeak, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moneyism.

Yugobatania is ranked 131,504th in the world and 6,714th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 33.95 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
