The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of Social Equality, Law & Order, and Commerce. The average income tax rate is 31%, but much higher for the wealthy. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, the Yandula Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Yandula to be bombproof. Crime is moderate. Yandula's national animal is the Axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the Dules.
