The Democratic Republic of Yunora is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 572 million Yunorans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yoriko. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Yunoran economy, worth 7.56 trillion Flurms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 13,216 Flurms, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, the Yunoran Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and murderers and thieves claim divine inspiration to avoid prosecution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yunora's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yunora is ranked 180,485th in the world and 210th in Astoria for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 285.02 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
