|Leader||A Cool Guy|
The Commonwealth of Yelkinam is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by A Cool Guy with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.258 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 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Yelkinamian economy, worth 240 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,709 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Yelkinam" at foreigners, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.
