The Union of Socialist Republics of Yaroi is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prestigious Leader Zhou Kang with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.775 billion Yaroii love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yaroi City. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaroi economy, worth 279 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 fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,288 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Prestigious Leader Zhou Kang and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 4,603rd in the world and 21st in The Internationale for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 36,613.71 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
