The Xenopolis of YoriZ is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by autonomous leadership with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.285 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient worker-controlled economy, worth a remarkable 9,725 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 301,240 e-gold™s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, the nation has nearly as many history museums as well-informed floating voters, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. 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 404th in the world and 4th in Anarchy for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 15,321.97 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
