The Inferno Republic of Hardened Pyrokinetics is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Jacquelyn Bernard with an even hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.204 billion Pyrokians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Equality, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merako. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hardened Pyrokinetics's national animal is the Fire Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the Grand Church of the Holy Flames, and its currency is the Fire Dollar.

Hardened Pyrokinetics is ranked 2nd in Ankh Mauta and 498th in the world for Best Weather, with 643 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
