The Desert Dragon of Yokiria is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ia of the Swords with an even hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 8.182 billion Yokirians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yokir. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Yokirian economy, worth 152 trillion packets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports and Information Technology. Average income is 18,599 packets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has taken a 'sort it out yourselves' approach to fighting malaria, Brasilistanis face layers of paperwork in a different language just to visit a doctor, every workday begins with group therapy, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yokiria's national animal is the mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is that thing people do.

Yokiria is ranked 101,164th in the world and 5th in The Desert for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 48.74 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
