The Xenopolis of YoriZ is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by autonomous leadership with a fair hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.436 billion well-informed floating voters are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient worker-controlled economy, worth an astonishing 12,665 trillion e-gold™s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 347,620 e-gold™s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, fat-shaming is now public policy, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, and Autonomous leadership's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. YoriZ's national animal is the bureau©rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

YoriZ is ranked 242,194th in the world and 140th in Anarchy for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -39.9 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
