The United Parhics of Yemrod is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Eschaton with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.05 billion Yemrodians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.3%.

The all-consuming Yemrodian economy, worth 367 trillion Eniguses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,620 Eniguses, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign musicians that Eschaton dislikes are turned away at the border, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yemrod's national animal is the Purple Heron, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Yemrod is ranked 97,754th in the world and 2,362nd in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 22.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
