The United Socialist States of Yaroi is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 160 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 Defense. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Yaroi economy, worth 9.87 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 Beef-Based Agriculture and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 61,679 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, extreme political groups are outlawed, Yaroi's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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.
