The Empire of Yeunen is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by His Imperial Majesty Emperor Chang with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 984 million Yeunenians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Longshan. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yeunenian economy, worth 102 trillion talents a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,725 talents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yeunen's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Yeunen is ranked 107,444th in the world and 36th in Oatland for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
