The Corrupt States of Yokciq Empire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Yokciq with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.078 billion Yokciq Empireans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yokciq City. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yokciq Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 6,299 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 348,455 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBYE Governor goes house hunting, tabloids coo over Yokciq's expected child, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Yokciq Empire's national animal is the Godeater Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yokciq Empire is ranked 7,531st in the world and 371st in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 105.74 law-abiding acts per hour.
