The Corrupt States of Yokciq Empire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Yokciq with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.47 billion Yokciq Empireans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yokciq City. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yokciq Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 4,007 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 321,341 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies", if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Yokciq Empire, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, and petitions to the government are being used to insulate politicians' office walls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Yokciq Empire's national animal is the Godeater Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yokciq Empire is ranked 23,398th in the world and 476th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 12.5 billion Capita.
