The Pristine Wilderness of Yeldan Nature Preserve is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by China Cat Sunflower with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 31.502 billion Yeldan Nature Preserveans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Environment, with Public Transport and Social Policy also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of a psychedelic school bus. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Yeldan Nature Preservean economy, worth 448 trillion YNP Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 14,238 YNP Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astronomers are flocking to Yeldan Nature Preserve to take advantage of its clear night skies, illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yeldan Nature Preserve's national animal is the Spotthecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Environmentalism.

Yeldan Nature Preserve is ranked 168,578th in the world and 367th in Forest for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.41 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
