The Republic of National Yorkshire is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 432 million Yorkies are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of York. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The very strong National Yorkshirean economy, worth 22.4 trillion Yorkshire Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 51,768 Yorkshire Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 158,143 per year while the poor average 13,135, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Church and state are inseparable in their influence on education, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, all fantasy fiction has officially been deemed non-canon, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. National Yorkshire's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

National Yorkshire is ranked 158,894th in the world and 22nd in Empire of Great Britain for Most Cultured, scoring 59 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
