The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 23.931 billion Ur-Quans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. 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 12,957 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 Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 541,454 Sa-Matras, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hesperonis is ranked 3,682nd in Lazarus and 115,014th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -712 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
