The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 23.705 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.

1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, nude art is becoming wildly popular, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. 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 259th in Lazarus and 5,699th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 12 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
