The Allied States of Yostraria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Zenobio Parisi with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.506 billion Yostrarians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Public Transport is also considered important, while Administration and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verbania. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The powerhouse Yostrarian economy, worth 392 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Average income is 71,362 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 304,732 per year while the poor average 10,729, a ratio of 28.4 to 1.

The streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points, bris parties are all the rage, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, and preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Yostraria's national animal is the Kangaroo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Yostraria is ranked 214,777th in the world and 35th in Xedas for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -7.16 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
