The Federal Republic of Ylkcua is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 353 million Ylkcuans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ylkcua. The average income tax rate is 25.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ylkcuan economy, worth 23.2 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,632 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, nudity is frowned upon, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ylkcua's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ylkcua is ranked 29,984th in the world and 1,109th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,145.77 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
