The Socialist States of Yousta is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Sylvia Thomas with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.601 billion Youstans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yousta City. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Youstan economy, worth 646 trillion Youstan Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 140,520 Youstan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a baffling press conference President Sylvia Thomas proudly dismantled a broken door, Yousta's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, refugees from other nations are flocking to Yousta's border, and the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches. Crime is totally unknown. Yousta's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Yousta is ranked 60,989th in the world and 64th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Populations, with 4.60 billion Capita.
