The Republic of Yorklandia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 466 million Yorklandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lochport. The average income tax rate is 46.9%.

The all-consuming Yorklandian economy, worth 45.9 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 98,521 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and professional athletes can't see balls amid the deluge of advertisements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 25,603rd in the world and 9th in West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 77.12 on the Human Development Index.
