The Corrupt States of Yokciq Empire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Yokciq with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.679 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, well-organized 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 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yokciq Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 4,868 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 331,656 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage, the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, and a new Brasilistani government has become a daily report on the main evening news. 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 196,548th in the world and 10,126th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.03 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
