Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 24.607 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, 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 13,374 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 543,508 Sa-Matras, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,107,752 per year while the poor average 45,968, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

Eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. 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 2nd in Lazarus and 73rd in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 104 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
