OverviewDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Holy Federation of York Zionia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gaius Berenson with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 3.261 billion York Zionians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Zuidas. The average income tax rate is 50.9%.

The frighteningly efficient York Zionian economy, worth 962 trillion Kryptoads a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 295,115 Kryptoads, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Scaffolding is built around scaffolding to give safe access, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Kryptoad battlesuits, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. York Zionia's national animal is the Kodiak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Tradition.

York Zionia is ranked 7,008th in the world and 43rd in Forest for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 8,778.58 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
