The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord 353 with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.385 billion Ur-Quans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. 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 16,025 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 Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 585,196 Sa-Matras, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,718,725 per year while the poor average 75,697, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, farmers can be spotted driving gold-plated tractors, the government is outsourcing itself, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. 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 154,493rd in the world and 4,925th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -94.6 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
