The Mighty Dictatorship of Yeldarbsland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jean Chouan with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.749 billion Yeldarbslandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mayenne. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Yeldarbslandian economy, worth 349 trillion Bradbucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 200,028 Bradbucks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 839,867 per year while the poor average 30,960, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.

Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Platypowldogs' dominate wildlife preserves, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and many of the poor live from cradle to grave without ever seeing sunlight. Crime is totally unknown. Yeldarbsland's national animal is the Platypowl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicity.

Yeldarbsland is ranked 34,280th in the world and 1,320th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.46 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
