The Armed Republic of Yearsley is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 401 million Yearsleyians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Yearsleyian economy, worth 49.9 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 124,341 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government is lending a hand to private industry, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and people who have lived their entire lives in Yearsley are shocked to discover that they are not citizens. 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 47,828th in the world and 3rd in The Greater Galy Peninsula for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 5.76 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
