The Queendom of River Yui is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by River with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 8.531 billion River Yuians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bot City. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish River Yuian economy, worth 143 trillion Silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is 16,842 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, River Yui has designated Bot City as its capital city, River has just been declared ruler of River Yui in an international press conference, and River Yui's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. River Yui's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

River Yui is ranked 165,548th in the world and 54th in Cynosure for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 18,441.4 Standard Monetary Units.
