The Queendom of York Landing is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.537 billion York Landingians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The strong York Landingian economy, worth 460 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 61,103 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 592,437 per year while the poor average 303, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

York Landing has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. York Landing's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

York Landing is ranked 84,189th in the world and 6th in Toronto for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,920.6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
