The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.224 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.

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.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and many junior high school teachers minor in midwifery. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 2nd in Lazarus and 76th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 102 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
