The Gloriously Retired State of Yukkira is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Crown Princess Kirin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, parental licensing program, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.466 billion Yukkirians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seta. The average income tax rate is 68.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Yukkirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,529 trillion Imperial Banking Notes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 279,738 Imperial Banking Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, the newest shade developed by Yukkira's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, and families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Yukkira's national animal is the White Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Imperialism.

Yukkira is ranked 792nd in the world and 538th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 166 Valid Endorsements.
