The Confederacy of Yorkshire and its colonies is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Barry Chuckle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.855 billion Yorks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leeds. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong from Yorkshire economy, worth 93.6 trillion Thruppeny Bits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,466 Thruppeny Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Yorkshire and its colonies to be bombproof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yorkshire and its colonies's national animal is the Red Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Holy Church of Tetley Decaf.

Yorkshire and its colonies is ranked 31,235th in the world and 976th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,715.87 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
