The Theocracy of Yammstan is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 837 million Yammstanians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 31.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Yammstanian economy, worth 22.8 trillion yen a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,194 yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, notable individuals are granted land and titles, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, and Mr Happy's Funland has just been named Yammstan's new capital. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yammstan's national animal is the tiger, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Yammstan is ranked 202,243rd in the world and 8,084th in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -9.85 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
