The Dictatorship of Yps is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.105 billion Ypsians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ypsian economy, worth 147 trillion Standard Ypsian Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,479 Standard Ypsian Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 512,225 per year while the poor average 23,980, a ratio of 21.4 to 1.

The government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yps's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Yps is ranked 36,596th in the world and 12th in The Free Nations Region for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 21.36 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
