YSG Hermitcraft

Population158 million

AnimalZuk Goose

The Democratic Republic of YSG Hermitcraft is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 158 million Hermits are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.3%.

The Hermitian economy, worth 7.97 trillion Starbits a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,466 Starbits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Private law firms are unheard of, rich people sell their mansions to pay for endless rows of mobile homes, farting etiquette is taught in schools, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. YSG Hermitcraft's national animal is the Zuk Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

YSG Hermitcraft is ranked 26,563rd in the world and 790th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 7.52 Bank.
