The Xenopolis of YoriZ is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by demographically representative panelists with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 39.557 billion well-informed floating voters are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient worker-controlled economy, worth an astonishing 14,090 trillion e-gold™s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 356,201 e-gold™s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, and the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. YoriZ's national animal is the bureau©rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

YoriZ is ranked 3,774th in the world and 7th in Anarchy for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 614.42 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
