The Kingdom of Yurpa is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory military service. The cynical, devout population of 820 million Yurpans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varan. The average income tax rate is 54.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Yurpan economy, worth 48.0 trillion Pents a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,513 Pents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The judicial system legislates morality, most ambassadors from Yurpa retire only a few years after being appointed, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yurpa's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yurpa is ranked 202,883rd in the world and 3rd in The Good Kind for Most Secular, with 10.86 Atheism Rate.
