The Abstruse Queendom of Yokiria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ravenaria with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 11.501 billion Yokirians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yokir. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Yokirian economy, worth 462 trillion packets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 40,221 packets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, adults have never outgrown their fear of monsters, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yokiria's national animal is the mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monotheism.

Yokiria is ranked 139,890th in the world and 4,511th in Osiris for Fattest Citizens, with 9.46 Obesity Rate.
