Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Xenopolis of YoriZ is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.114 billion murderous book fans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient co-determinized economy, worth a remarkable 5,111 trillion e-gold™s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 195,731 e-gold™s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million e-gold™s of property damage, YoriZ City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. YoriZ's national animal is the bureau©rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

YoriZ is ranked 14,870th in the world and 13th in Anarchy for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.67 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
