The Class S League of Yuri Jodoushi is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Yuri Skjaldmær with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.848 billion Doushis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panazono. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Yuri Jodoushian economy, worth 625 trillion Nobukoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 219,536 Nobukoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, hammer and sickle-wielding space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, and police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yuri Jodoushi's national animal is the Catgirl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yuri-ism.

Yuri Jodoushi is ranked 3,029th in the world and 3rd in Yuno for Highest Poor Incomes, with 160,070.96 Standard Monetary Units.
