The Commonwealth of Yelkinam is a massive, genial nation, ruled by A cool guy with a fair hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.083 billion Yelkinamians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcania. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Yelkinamian economy, worth 58.7 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,239 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, A cool guy has just been declared ruler of Yelkinam in an international press conference, military spending is on the increase, and the National Art Gallery's newest exhibit is the 500-year-old Luna Lisa. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yelkinam's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yelkinam is ranked 100,770th in the world and 3,965th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,582.82 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
