Yerba is the island country the gang visits in the episode Locked Up! The country is ruled by a chancellor, who remains unnamed throughout the episode.


At the time of the filming of the episode, Yerba was at war with rebel forces. This is the reason why soldiers are seen frequently throughout the episode. The national language is Yerbanian (A modified version of Spanish), mixed occasionally with English words. The landscape of Yerba is bleak and desolate, and the urban areas are poor and underdeveloped. Despite the fact that the Victorious gang stayed at the best hotel in the country, the hotel was disgusting and even the prison is unsatisfactory. Yerba is a Dictatorship and is well-known for Yerbanian Gravy made in prison.

The current flag consists of a yellow stripe in a diagonal strip along with the flag, with a double-headed eagle-inspired symbol, covered with a pure red background. In vexillology, the red background is often representative of blood and valor, as well as courage and strength.[1] This is underscored by the current state of the Yerbanian nation; the current state, being in the midst of a civil war with rebel groups. The yellow stripe is often symbolic of its wealth and justice.[1] This statement is contrasted by the nation's injustice with the court, shown through the lawyer's fear of rebellion. This is an example of totalitarian government oppression, whereby the government has all of the decisions, leaving the society to merely obey by the government's decision. The double-headed eagle is representative of the sovereignty of the nation and its declaration as a nation, rather than a territory. This symbol is most likely inspired by the current symbol on the Albanian flag, where the color scheme of the Yerbanian flag bears a similar style to that of the Albanian flag. As a result, this could be a parody of Albania. However, according to some or only a very few fans/viewers, rest of the builds and background locations could also most likely be similar to Alcatraz, due to the prison-related material/environment.
