Yojom

Population625 million

The United Socialist States of Yojom is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 625 million Yojomians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Yojomian economy, worth 20.8 trillion ES 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Gambling, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. 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 33,228 ES , and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Yojomian democracy, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yojom's national animal is the Redbone Coonhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yojom is ranked 225,361st in the world and 265th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.17 Weapons Per Person.
