The Dominion of Yewbow is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 340 million Yewbowians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rainy Day City. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Yewbowian economy, worth 32.0 trillion Aahs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,218 Aahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yewbow's national animal is the Coelacanth, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Yewbow is ranked 30,127th in the world and 1,478th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 66.87 on the Human Development Index.
