The Kingdom of Yalaw is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-working, devout population of 841 million Yalawians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yalana. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yalawian economy, worth 89.4 trillion Preans a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,248 Preans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yalaw's national animal is the Bright Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yalaw is ranked 61,938th in the world and 2,390th in the West Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,378.1 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
