The United Kingdom of Yurc is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Cyrus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, otherworldly petting zoo, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.027 billion Yurcians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Francia. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Yurcian economy, worth 805 trillion Franks a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,177 Franks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBY Governor goes house hunting, expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Yurc after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yurc's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Yurc is ranked 150,056th in the world and 8,335th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 26.37 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
