The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.964 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 juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. 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.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison. 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 838th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 11 on the Hayek Index.
