Yorciand

Population8.33 billion

The Free Land of Yorciand is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.33 billion Yorciandians 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 Education, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The thriving Yorciandian economy, worth 533 trillion marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 64,053 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 226,727 per year while the poor average 13,065, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales'. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Yorciand's national animal is the horse, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Yorciand is ranked 53,443rd in the world and 92nd in Union of Free Nations for Most Influential, scoring 817 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
