The Kingdom of Yurpa is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 597 million Yurpans 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varan. The average income tax rate is 44.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Yurpan economy, worth 38.2 trillion Pents a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,016 Pents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Both illness and poverty are seen as signs of low moral worth, foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Yurpan selfishness, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Yurpan officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yurpa's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yurpa is ranked 149,280th in the world and 5,859th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.43 Crimes Per Hour.
