The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lord 353 with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.218 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals is mainly concerned with Defence, although Commerce and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delta Crateris V. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Hesperonis's national animal is the Dnyarri, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Sa-Matra.

Hesperonis is ranked 6th in Lazarus and 165th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 24 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
