The Imperial Kingdom of Yoylum is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Gradumus II with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 1.095 billion 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 prioritizes Law & Order, with Industry, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yoyle City. The average income tax rate is 26.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Yoyle economy, worth 97.9 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 89,409 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yoylum's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Yoylum is ranked 14,888th in the world and 164th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,058.33 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
