The Confederacy of Yorkshire and its colonies is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Barry Chuckle with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.714 billion Yorks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leeds. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Eborian economy, worth 265 trillion Thruppeny Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 71,485 Thruppeny Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", and whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Eborian Embarrassments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yorkshire and its colonies's national animal is the Red Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Holy Church of Yorkshire Tea.

Yorkshire and its colonies is ranked 230,282nd in the world and 6th in Shelp for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.66 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
