The Republic of Yarkuo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Meiko Nakahara with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.372 billion Yarkuoaks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Little Yark Yark. The average income tax rate is 24.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Yarkuoak economy, worth 230 trillion Huangs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 68,473 Huangs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders are advising that Meiko Nakahara's letters must have gotten lost in the mail, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, newspapers are running a front-page picture of Meiko Nakahara holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, and police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Yarkuo's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Yarkuoism.

Yarkuo is ranked 282,905th in the world and 10,982nd in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 41.19 Whatever.
