The Asteroid Ship of Yonada is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Oracle with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.8 billion Fabrinis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Oracle Room. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Yonadan economy, worth 71.6 trillion Herb Tablets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 39,788 Herb Tablets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists on vacation find The Oracle's scriptures make useful doorstops, there's no such thing as a safe bet, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yonada's national animal is the Xenopolycythemia, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Oracle.

Yonada is ranked 174,884th in the world and 186th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Largest Black Market, with 61.7 billion Standard Monetary Units.
