The Xenopolis of YoriZ is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.948 billion murderous book fans 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient worker-controlled economy, worth a remarkable 6,548 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 234,299 e-gold™s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. YoriZ's national animal is the bureau©rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

YoriZ is ranked 246th in the world and 2nd in Anarchy for Longest Average Lifespans, with 94.5 Years.
