The Commonwealth of Yelkinam is a massive, safe nation, ruled by A Cool Guy with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.525 billion Yelkinamians 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, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcania. The average income tax rate is 66.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Yelkinamian economy, worth 159 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,284 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, rundown towns are frequently sold to billionaires for their pet projects, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, and most barbers are also surgeons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yelkinam's national animal is the Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Yelkinam is ranked 24,748th in the world and 762nd in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 8.22 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
