The Republic of Yrivui is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its national health service, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 392 million Yrivuians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Yrivuian economy, worth 8.90 trillion kuarahis a year, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 22,712 kuarahis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When their backs are against the walls Yrivuians look out for gay men, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, foreign leaders with unpaid parking tickets are often refused entry, and too many developers spoil the codebase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yrivui's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yrivui is ranked 112,272nd in the world and 256th in Forest for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,088.33 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
