The Inferno Republic of Hardened Pyrokinetics is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Jacquelyn Bernard with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.901 billion Pyrokians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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, Healthcare, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merako. The average income tax rate is 85%, 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.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 46th in Ankh Mauta and 100,031st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -12 on the Hayek Index.
