The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.467 billion Hyperbians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tast. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Agricultural science is the most competitive subject at Hyperbia's universities, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyperbia's national animal is the Shoggoth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the tulu metal.

Hyperbia is ranked 2nd in Pyoko and 848th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 11 on the Hayek Index.
