The Empire of Yaruta is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 826 million Yarutans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orwellon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.5%.

The all-consuming Yarutan economy, worth 78.3 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,789 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Yarutans incessantly needle their doctors for relief, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Yaruta's national animal is the tiger.

Yaruta is ranked 49,915th in the world and 4th in The United Nations of Relative Logic for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 8.58 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
