The Inferno Republic of Hardened Pyrokinetics is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Jacquelyn Bernard with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.862 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, Healthcare, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merako. The average income tax rate is 81%, 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.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, all guns must be registered, and Merako is a police state during international summits. 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 3rd in Ankh Mauta and 1,088th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 52 on the Enoch Index.
