The Kingdom of Yulmata is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 861 million Yulmatans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sadera. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.3%.

The powerhouse Yulmatan economy, worth 85.6 trillion Aureuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,371 Aureuses, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, third world countries are rich in "I Love Sadera" t-shirts, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, and Leader has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yulmata's national animal is the Griffon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Yulmata is ranked 103,749th in the world and 13th in Markion for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 498.2 Tourists Per Hour.
