The United States of Yorklandia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Michael Caplan with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 911 million Yorklandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lochport. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yorklandian economy, worth 100 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 110,696 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, Michael Caplan seems to wear red a lot these days, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, and surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yorklandia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yorklandia is ranked 17,273rd in the world and 36th in International Democratic Union for Highest Poor Incomes, with 79,427.21 Standard Monetary Units.
