The Commonwealth of Yalkan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Amias I with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.748 billion Yalken hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeta. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yalken economy, worth a remarkable 1,667 trillion Drams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 130,838 Drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yalkan's national animal is the Dipper, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yalkan is ranked 52,654th in the world and 1,889th in The North Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 18.78 flags saluted per person per day.
