The Confederacy of Yorkshire and its colonies is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Barry Chuckle with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.993 billion Yorks enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leeds. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eborian economy, worth 486 trillion Thruppeny Bits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,462 Thruppeny Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Information Technology facilities are being turned into Sea Otter habitats, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yorkshire and its colonies's national animal is the Sea Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Holy Church of Yorkshire Tea.

Yorkshire and its colonies is ranked 24,271st in the world and 3rd in Yorkshire for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,069.4 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
