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 keen interest in outer space, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 24.299 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, although Industry is also considered important, 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 13,149 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 541,167 Sa-Matras, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,567,667 per year while the poor average 67,309, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, and all streets are privately owned toll roads. 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 10th in Lazarus and 237th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 12 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
