The Dictatorship of Imperial Yonacaria is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 481 million Yonacarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ubos-1. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.7%.

The very strong Yonacarian economy, worth 43.8 trillion luminites a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 91,074 luminites, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Psychological disorders are a taboo subject, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, prudishness is on the way out, and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Yonacaria's national animal is the biomass, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Imperial Yonacaria is ranked 236,767th in the world and 8,132nd in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -10.3 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
