Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 24.419 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 are ignored. 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 13,250 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 542,619 Sa-Matras, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,781,379 per year while the poor average 26,995, a ratio of 140 to 1.

The Hesperonis Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. 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 407th in Lazarus and 11,948th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 102 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
