The Grand Imperial Order of Cand Youkeons is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Youkeon with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.238 billion Youkeonians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Youkeonopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Youkeonian economy, worth 151 trillion Metal Bits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 122,457 Metal Bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 371,817 per year while the poor average 31,342, a ratio of 11.9 to 1.

Movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cand Youkeons's national animal is the Vulture, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Youkeonism.

Cand Youkeons is ranked 138,608th in the world and 13th in Moradaland for Most Primitive, scoring -191.16 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
