The United Republics of Yue Zhou is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Wu Zhongsheng with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.097 billion Yueren have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nangang. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.3%.

The powerhouse Yue economy, worth 445 trillion yuebis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 87,457 yuebis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 295,498 per year while the poor average 19,144, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, there's more than one way to skin a diplomat, and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yue Zhou's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yue Zhou is ranked 159,236th in the world and 55th in Rushmore for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.95 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
