Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 27 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 solely concerned with Defense. 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 15,628 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 Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 578,850 Sa-Matras, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,114,618 per year while the poor average 55,997, a ratio of 55.6 to 1.

Possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, citizens have to dodge their neighbor's drones while getting the morning paper, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. 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 266th in the world and 11th in Lazarus for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 89.22 Whatever.
