The Inferno Republic of Hardened Pyrokinetics is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Jacquelyn Bernard with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.015 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 Policy, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merako. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hardened Pyrokineticsian economy, worth 919 trillion Fire Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 114,708 Fire Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Max Barry is this year's Miss Hardened Pyrokinetics, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, and main battle tanks stalk the woods of Hardened Pyrokinetics in search of Fire Bears. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive. Hardened Pyrokinetics's national animal is the Fire Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Grand Church of the Holy Flames.

Hardened Pyrokinetics is ranked 18th in Ankh Mauta and 13,245th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 167 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
