The Great Imperial State of Yinshan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Celestial Emperor Tianlong with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.992 billion Yinshanese 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meihu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Yinshanese economy, worth 338 trillion Jinbis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 113,094 Jinbis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 418,012 per year while the poor average 21,568, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

Wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, it's a miracle that there aren't more plane crashes, and vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Yinshan's national animal is the Jinshan Goat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Liuganism.

Yinshan is ranked 11,344th in the world and 5th in Kerbin for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 7,596.74 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
