The Armed Republic of Yearsley is a small, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 29 million Yearsleyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The strong Yearsleyian economy, worth 2.19 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 75,418 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, the government seizes all major gold finds, and billions of Dollars are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Yearsley's national animal is the Cedric, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yearsley is ranked 32,116th in the world and 2nd in The Greater Galy Peninsula for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13,402.21 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
