The Commonwealth of Yelkinam is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by A Cool Guy with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.327 billion Yelkinamians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcania. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yelkinamian economy, worth 251 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,874 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is wading into dangerous waters, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, A Cool Guy's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yelkinam's national animal is the Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Yelkinam is ranked 128,385th in the world and 4,436th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 978.79 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
