The Gloriously WHY ARE YOU STILL of YuKkIrA is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Crown Princess Kirin with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.072 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Yukkirian economy, worth a remarkable 2,451 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 303,756 Imperial Banking Notes, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

If foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to YuKkIrA, real estate agencies are being replaced by naval recruitment offices, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". 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 215,132nd in the world and 7,235th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
