The Federal Republic of Yahlia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Kjeila Pentrăscu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.301 billion Yahlians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belgrade. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yahlian economy, worth a remarkable 1,629 trillion euros 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 223,243 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some Yahlian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and the new intercity submarine SSN Badger Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers. Crime is totally unknown. Yahlia's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is secularism.

Yahlia is ranked 12,613th in the world and 167th in Europe for Most Secular, with 86.62 Atheism Rate.
