The Armed Republic of Yearsley is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 420 million Yearsleyians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Yearsleyian economy, worth 53.0 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 126,135 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

It's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to the Tranquility of Yellow en masse, tardiness has increased after carpooling was classified as a criminal offense, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Yearsley's national animal is the Cedric, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yearsley is ranked 81,716th in the world and 2nd in The Greater Galy Peninsula for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 69.79 Workforce Participation Rate.
