The Republic of Yorklandia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 634 million Yorklandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lochport. The average income tax rate is 56.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Yorklandian economy, worth 62.0 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. Average income is 97,759 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, Lochport is a police state during international summits, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBY Governor goes house hunting, and Yorklandian actors literally work from cradle to grave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yorklandia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yorklandia is ranked 132,652nd in the world and 9th in West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -74.08 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
