Yrakksi (Yrakitta: Yrakksi [yräkʼsi]), officially the Republic of Yrakksi, is a country located in Eastern Miraria, neighbouring Achiyitqana, Haiseary and Faźulavaz.
Since its formation the state of Yrakksi has been characterised by extreme inequality between the urban and rural parts of the country. Outside the cities, population density is extremely low, rods are often in bad shape and the long distances between settlements make developing infrastructure difficult. While Yrakksi has access to vast reserves of natural resources, foreign investors have yet to discover its economic potential. More than half of the population lives below the poverty line.
Science and technology
Yrakksi is among the countries with the lowest degree of urbanisation of Sahar, with a mere 9 percent of citizens living in cities. It also has one of the highest percentages of nomadic population, although the exact number of nomadic families that are officially Yrakksi citizens is hard to determine due to migration routes often crossing national borders. Studies and estimates by Achiqiyitqan researchers have shown that at least 400,000 people, or almost a third of the population, do not live in permanent homes and subsist on herding, hunting and fishing. The only two urban areas of note are Uzarúkhos in the west and (insert new capital name here) on the shores of Lake Tigáatgia.
The sole official language is Yrakitta, a Hememitqan Maakpauean language related to Haisearelic and more distantly to Achiyitqan. A significant number of citizens is bilingual with Fazul.
In the urban regions, there is compulsory school attendance for all children from the age of seven until fourteen. The most commonly taught foreign language is Achiyitqan, followed by Haisearelic. Only very few students outside the upper class continue on to higher education; university is almost exclusively a privilege of the rich and influential. Unlike in neighbouring Haiseary, the male-female ratio among high school students is about equal.
Outside of the urban population centres, education standards are often very low. Both with the nomadic and the sedentary population of the central provinces have only limtied access to public education, with children frequently taken out of school to help with making a living or not attending school in the first place. In recent years, programmes to improve the attendance of nomad children have been implemented in some regions, although with little success.
Most Yraks are non-religious, with the atheist percentage around 63 percent. The most common religion is the Mahavic folk religion, which is followed by about 20 percent of the population.
