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 public floggings, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 24.13 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, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 13,011 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 539,209 Sa-Matras, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,186,248 per year while the poor average 88,526, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Surfers ride tsunamis of record height and toxicity, abortions are routinely performed in Hesperonis's hospitals, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hesperonis is ranked 2,900th in Lazarus and 105,147th in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring 10 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
