Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Xenopolis of YoriZ is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its digital currency, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.948 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 31.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient co-determinized economy, worth a remarkable 4,760 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 183,474 e-gold™s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surveillance cameras are banned, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. 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 2,106th in the world and 7th in Anarchy for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 80.94 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
