The Sultanate of Ymiru is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sultan Akhmed with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.029 billion Ymiruans 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yirill. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ymiruan economy, worth 99.9 trillion Ymirs a year, is fairly diversified and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,084 Ymirs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, the cancellation of "The Real Vixens of Yirill" has been described as a real blow for entertainment, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and Ynirian has been named as Ymiru's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ymiru's national animal is the Crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ynirian.

Ymiru is ranked 75,831st in the world and 3,639th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 53.67 on the Human Development Index.
