Gangkhar Puensum's location

Size & Shape

Yaøbù is perfectly round, with a diameter of 3km.


For the geological prehistory of Gangkhar Puensum see [1].


Yaøbù was founded sometime in the late 1200s by Uzbekistani refugees from the Mongol invasion of their country of residence, Austria. Gangkhar Puensum was decided on as the place to build Yaøbù because when viewed upside down it looked suspiciously like a muffin. Since then, Yaøbù has existed without help from the outside world, and until 1992 there were no foreign-owned businesses in Yaøbù. There are now two MacDonald's outlets and a Georgement Orangeworthy & Company minimall.


Yaøbù is ruled by its democratically elected ruling council, consisting of two permanent members, four long-term members, three short-term members and three raffle ticket winners. Short term elections are held once every three years, long term elections once every ten years, and a raffle is held annually. The current ruling council members are Zulzifar Dilshod, Georgement Orangeworthy, Leter Pang, Baxrom Laziza, Madina Ilhom, Tshering Sonam, Sumitra Ugyen, Yetho Puran, Chodak Dawa, Bilbey Geelik, George Macilroy and Robbie Barnsley.


Yaøbù's primary industry is farming, with agriculture making up 57% of its GDP. MacDonald's outlets make up a further 13%, while the minimall makes up 12%. The rest is largely pottery and ceramics.
