The Community of YourOnlyOne is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 545 million YourOnlyOnes are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient YourOnlyOne economy, worth 20.1 trillion ones a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,926 ones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation", a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, apprentice builders get teased for wearing hard hats, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. YourOnlyOne's national animal is the elephant, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

YourOnlyOne is ranked 183,468th in the world and 222nd in The Free Nations Region for Fattest Citizens, with 9.29 Obesity Rate.
