The Inferno Republic of Hardened Pyrokinetics is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Jacquelyn Bernard with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.753 billion Pyrokians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 95%. 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.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and most citizens in Hardened Pyrokinetics are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government. 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 1st in Ankh Mauta and 48th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 340 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
