The Democratic Republic of Yemet is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Frederik Gerev with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 2.922 billion Yemetians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tulipeo. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yemetian economy, worth 403 trillion Yemet Wengs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,125 Yemet Wengs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas, the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yemet's national animal is the Grey Nosed Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yemet is ranked 8,803rd in the world and 506th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.71 on the Human Development Index.
