Yellow-1

The Watchfires of Yellow-1 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, devout population of 12.151 billion Yellow-1ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 46.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Yellow-1ian economy, worth 923 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,008 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, the 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yellow-1's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yellow-1 is ranked 79,741st in the world and 1st in Yellowstone National Park for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 1,094.88 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
