The ElderGrump of Yy4u is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Argentum Lupus - 'skinwalker' with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26.515 billion 𝑾𝒐𝒍𝒗𝒆𝒏 are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 𝕊𝕚𝕟𝔽𝕖. The average income tax rate is 24.9%.

The powerhouse 𝑾𝒐𝒍𝒗𝒆𝒏 economy, worth a remarkable 1,789 trillion 𝑯𝒖𝒎𝒂𝒏𝑺𝒐𝒖𝒍s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 67,499 𝑯𝒖𝒎𝒂𝒏𝑺𝒐𝒖𝒍s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in the West Pacific, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Yy4u's radio stations, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Yy4u's national animal is the 𝑮𝒐𝒐𝒃𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒖𝒔 𝑹𝒊𝒅𝒊𝒄𝒖𝒍𝒂𝒆, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is poking you with 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒑 pointy things.

Yy4u is ranked 130,247th in the world and 5,205th in the West Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.04 Crimes Per Hour.
