The Grand Duchy of The Grand Duchy of Yurstonstan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Duke Śërmáten with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 11.457 billion Yurstonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yurstonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,536 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 Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 221,360 Yurst Resders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. 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 233,484th in the world and 5,622nd in the Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -336.83 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
