The Holy Empire of Yoshi is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large government devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 26%, but much higher for the wealthy. A very small private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Trout Farming.
Crime is moderate. Yoshi’s national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation’s many lush forests, and its currency is the looba.
