The Commonwealth of Yalingrad is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 261 million Yalingradians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krakovilnius. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The strong Yalingradian economy, worth 15.1 trillion Talonas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 57,894 Talonas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 172,715 per year while the poor average 15,193, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

The nation is known abroad for fast food and nothing else, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Yalingrad's national animal is the Goat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Yalingrad is ranked 188,832nd in the world and 2,056th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 45.14 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
