The People's Republic of Yorkshire and Northumbria is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.033 billion Yorkshire and Northumbrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Yorkshire and Northumbrian economy, worth 512 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 101,754 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yorkshire and Northumbria's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yorkshire and Northumbria is ranked 189,031st in the world and 6,978th in Balder for Most Pro-Market, scoring -82.88 on the Rand Index.
