The Grand Duchy of Yurstonstan

Population8.176 billion

LeaderDuke Śërmáten

CurrencyYurst Resder

The Grand Duchy of The Grand Duchy of Yurstonstan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Duke Śërmáten with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 8.176 billion Yurstonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bioyino. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Yurstonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,657 trillion Yurst Resders 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 202,720 Yurst Resders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Duke Śërmáten goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grand Duchy of Yurstonstan's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Grand Duchy of Yurstonstan is ranked 27,039th in the world and 961st in the Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,362.91 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
