The Empire of Golden York is a massive, genial nation, ruled by HIM Empress Jacqueline I with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 4.303 billion Golden Yorkians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Golden Yorkian economy, worth 616 trillion Yorkian Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,261 Yorkian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Golden York's national animal is the Golden Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Nondenominational Church of York.

Golden York is ranked 199,498th in the world and 158th in Wintercrest for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.11 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
