The USA State of Yooper is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Conroy with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.312 billion Yooperlites live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Escanaba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The strong Yooperian economy, worth 64.6 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 49,225 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 260,123 per year while the poor average 4,947, a ratio of 52.6 to 1.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, Joe Conroy has just been declared ruler of Yooper in an international press conference, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Yooper's national animal is the Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yooper is ranked 198,701st in the world and 11th in Celestian Prosperity Sphere for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -7.07 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
