The Armed Republic of Yuktibonia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Atticus Kain with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.85 billion Yuktibonians 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Directus. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Yuktibonian economy, worth 328 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,096 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The world still seems flat to some people in space, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and interest in globalism never flags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yuktibonia's national animal is the Bearded Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yuktibonia is ranked 139,851st in the world and 49th in Crassia for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 49.81 Workforce Participation Rate.
