Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 25.171 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, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, 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 13,803 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 548,392 Sa-Matras, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,825,247 per year while the poor average 122,774, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and Lord 353's mistress is the belle at many state balls. 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 4,132nd in Lazarus and 129,071st in the world for Most Devout, scoring -814 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
