The Commonwealth of Yuledon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Walden Valerius with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.578 billion Yuledonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terlania. The average income tax rate is 43.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Yuledonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,117 trillion blots a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,559 blots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the nation is known as the cheapskates of Balder, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yuledon's national animal is the platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Yuledon is ranked 80,950th in the world and 3,512th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,035.76 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
