The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord 353 with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.156 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.

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 on the agenda. 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.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. 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 100th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 27 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
