The Celtic Empire of YoungGunners is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Dubhain with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, daily referendums, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.182 billion YoungGunner's 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient YoungGunnersian economy, worth a remarkable 1,025 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 142,806 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, students do more community service than homework, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. YoungGunners's national animal is the Celtic Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

YoungGunners is ranked 5,633rd in the world and 21st in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 93.38 on the Human Development Index.
