The Union of Socialist Republics of Yaroi is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 680 million Yaroii 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 Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yaroi City. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Yaroi economy, worth 78.7 trillion Credits 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 115,673 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Yaroi after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, military funding has been stripped back, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaroi's national animal is the Thunder Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yaroi is ranked 141,660th in the world and 254th in The Internationale for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.37 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
