The Stratocracy of Yorrkon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Felton Vince with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.993 billion Yorrks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Renston. The average income tax rate is 44.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Yorrkish economy, worth 263 trillion Vences 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. 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 88,107 Vences, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the government violently suppresses separatist movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yorrkon's national animal is the Malamute, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yorrkon is ranked 41,815th in the world and 93rd in The Western Isles for Most Stationary, with 262.19766552672 Days.
