The Infinite Empire of Yallak is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 31.089 billion Yallakians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrandin. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yallakian economy, worth a remarkable 5,442 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,054 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, builders across Yallak are blocked up with orders for new public loos, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yallak's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Yallak is ranked 1,187th in the world and 1st in Tyrrhenia for Highest Economic Output, with 5,442 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
