The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 23.344 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.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, some members of Parliament are illiterate, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. 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 302nd in Lazarus and 9,374th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 102 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
