The Principality of Questarian New Yorkshire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.876 billion Questarian New Yorkshireans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Questarian New Yorkshirean economy, worth 72.4 trillion QNY Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 25,157 QNY Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Questarian New Yorkshire's national animal is the imprisoned journalist, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Questarian New Yorkshire is ranked 66,645th in the world and 3,293rd in Balder for Largest Governments, scoring 16.12 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
