Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Xenopolis of YoriZ is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.123 billion murderous book fans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient worker-controlled economy, worth a remarkable 6,620 trillion e-gold™s a year, is extremely specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 244,081 e-gold™s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government pours millions of e-gold™s into rehabilitation programs annually, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, abortions are routinely performed in YoriZ's hospitals, and town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. YoriZ's national animal is the bureau©rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

YoriZ is ranked 26,139th in the world and 30th in Anarchy for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 73.43 Effective Tax Rate.
