The Holy Federation of York Zionia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gaius Berenson with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 3.272 billion York Zionians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Zuidas. The average income tax rate is 49.2%.

The frighteningly efficient York Zionian economy, worth 960 trillion Kryptoads a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 293,643 Kryptoads, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Kryptoad battlesuits, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. York Zionia's national animal is the Kodiak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Tradition.

York Zionia is ranked 3,979th in the world and 38th in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 19,695.52 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
