The Xenopolis of YoriZ is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.652 billion murderous book fans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient worker-controlled economy, worth a remarkable 5,706 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 214,122 e-gold™s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens select which government department gets their income tax e-gold™s each year, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, there is a dearth of space for new houses, and the new Bureau©rat Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
