The Imperial Autocracy of New Yi Empire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Yianna and King Yi X with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.477 billion Yis are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yi City. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Yi economy, worth 50.1 trillion Yi Dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,900 Yi Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New Yi Empire has designated Yi City as its capital city, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, the police double as repo men, and Queen Yianna and King Yi X has just been declared ruler of New Yi Empire in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Yi Empire's national animal is the Yi Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New Yi Empire is ranked 191,380th in the world and 21st in The Eternal Robotox Empire for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -3 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
