Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Kingdom of Yurc is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kevin with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.437 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Francia. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Yurcian economy, worth 700 trillion Franks a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,811 Franks, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages. 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 4,281st in the world and 213th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 284 Meters Of Sunlight.
