Imperial Yemrod

Population96 million


The Republic of Imperial Yemrod is a large, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 96 million Imperial Yemrodians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Imperial Yemrodian economy, worth 5.06 trillion Envits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 52,674 Envits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed, and wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Yemrod's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Imperial Yemrod is ranked 224,359th in the world and 6,887th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -8.49 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
