The Celtic Empire of YoungGunners is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Dubhain with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.998 billion YoungGunner's enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient YoungGunnersian economy, worth 873 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,635 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The news is showing footage of Emperor Dubhain bullying an old man to the point of tears, being Emperor Dubhain has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, and treason is relative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. YoungGunners's national animal is the Celtic Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

YoungGunners is ranked 168,016th in the world and 189th in Sonindia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -4.58 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
