The AnarCity of YoriZ is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 22.999 billion anarchists hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The all-consuming anarchist economy, worth a remarkable 5,603 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 amazing 243,643 e-gold™s, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

YoriZ is ranked 2nd in Anarchy and 481st in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,685.45 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
