The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord 353 with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.547 billion Ur-Quans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delta Crateris V. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hesperonisian economy, worth an astonishing 16,300 trillion Sa-Matras a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 591,724 Sa-Matras, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,526,790 per year while the poor average 88,971, a ratio of 28.4 to 1.

The nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hesperonis's national animal is the Dnyarri, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hesperonis is ranked 11th in the world and 1st in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 997.19 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
