Yocoburg

Population4.103 billion

The Principality of Yocoburg is a massive, safe nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, fear of technology, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.103 billion Yocoburgians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 64.7%.

The powerhouse Yocoburgian economy, worth 346 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,552 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

A three-year-old has been selected to run the civil service, costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yocoburg's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Yocoburg is ranked 70,259th in the world and 2,606th in Osiris for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 159,116.49 Standard Monetary Units.
