The Most Serene Republic of Yalgora is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Michelangelo Sirendra with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 855 million Yalgorans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkadianopoulis. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Yalgoran economy, worth 87.9 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,833 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Yalgoran lands, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, and Yalgoran police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yalgora's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Yalgora is ranked 206,946th in the world and 9,343rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -117.38 on the Hayek Index.
