The Queen's State of Rio Yukon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.507 billion Rio Yukonians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The powerhouse Rio Yukonian economy, worth 988 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 42,066 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 144,318 per year while the poor average 8,999, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and the military struggles with recruitment. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Rio Yukon's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rio Yukon is ranked 67,258th in the world and 2nd in Qatar for Most Developed, scoring 59.33 on the Human Development Index.
