The Empire of Yellia is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 14 million Yellians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.6%.

The strong Yellian economy, worth 787 billion Units a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 56,285 Units, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 163,007 per year while the poor average 15,401, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, people talk about things being better when men were men, libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yellia's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yellia is ranked 67,288th in the world and 2,421st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,636.65 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
