The Incorporated States of Yamphrip is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 954 million Yamphripians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of natsui city. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yamphripian economy, worth 142 trillion florens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 149,287 florens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, sex changes are routinely performed at Yamphrip's hospitals, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yamphrip's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Yamphrip is ranked 18,805th in the world and 452nd in the Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 64.84 quips per hour.
