The Commonwealth of Yalkan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Amias I with a fair hand, and notable for its fear of technology, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.095 billion Yalken hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeta. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yalken economy, worth a remarkable 1,207 trillion Drams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 132,725 Drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yalkan's national animal is the Dipper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yalkan is ranked 1,526th in the world and 611th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 62,615 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
