The Former State of Yinshan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Celestial Emperor Tianlong with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.03 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taidu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Yinshanese economy, worth 461 trillion Guobis 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 114,413 Guobis, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Taidu's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen, Celestial Emperor Tianlong claims to be the epitome of family values, the government snoops on private internet connections, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 151,869th in the world and 37th in Kerbin for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.71 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
