The People's Republic of Yorkshire and Northumbria is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, digital currency, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.261 billion Yorkshire and Northumbrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Yorkshire and Northumbrian economy, worth 310 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 95,274 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, billions are being spent on a new island airport, every week is blindness awareness week, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. 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 88,391st in the world and 3,511th in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 600.37 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
