The Empire of Yoylum is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 542 million Yoylians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yoyle City. The average income tax rate is 28.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Yoyle economy, worth 34.4 trillion Win Tokens a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 63,498 Win Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, and Yoyle police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Yoylum's national animal is the Oscar Duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yoylum is ranked 104,735th in the world and 647th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.56 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
