Location: The Greater Galy Peninsula

Regional Influence: Power


The Armed Republic of Yearsley is a small, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 45 million Yearsleyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The strong Yearsleyian economy, worth 3.64 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 80,787 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50. 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 76,773rd in the world and 3rd in The Greater Galy Peninsula for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,373.11 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
