The Kawaii Peoples Empire of Yong is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Kari with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 12.699 billion Yongians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Houfu. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Yongian economy, worth a remarkable 2,428 trillion Yongian yen a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,269 Yongian yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yong's national animal is the かわいい 猫, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yumawa.

Yong is ranked 4,968th in the world and 54th in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Food Quality, scoring 200.88 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
