National Animal: Genetically Modified Horse
Currency: Plank Energy Pack
The Free Land of Free Earthian Yap is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 181 million Yaplien enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The tiny, liberal government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Yaplian economy, worth 18.1 trillion Plank Energy Packs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 99,981 Plank Energy Packs, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.
Pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Yaplian roads, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', it's not mass murder when the government does it, and the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash". Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Free Earthian Yap's national animal is the Genetically Modified Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
Free Earthian Yap is a relatively recent member to the Islands, they have been quite active on the RMB, even offering a hand to some of the newer islanders and have also signed up to the forums. I hope they continue to do great things in the Islands.
